People are my passion. I want my guests to feel welcome to the areas they are visiting and comfortable among their fellow guests. Travel is an experience of discovery in which we learn about other places and people. As a guide, I facilitate the journey my guests take so they have a memorable experience.
Because I am a native of Colorado, the state has been my home and the Rocky Mountain Region has been my "playground." I am comfortable whether on the plains or in the mountains. However, I have also traveled within the U.S., to Canada and Mexico, and to Europe.
I am a husband and father; a teacher of Drama and English and play director in public high schools; an actor in local theatre, film and television; the recipient of a Ph.D.; and a veteran of the U.S. military.
