Mission Statment:

To snowboard and document as many glaciated places as humanly possible. Exploring areas where few people have gone is important in a world that is constantly changing.

Motivations:

It is the journey that inspires me.  Getting to the top of a peak is challenging work and it takes constant attention to do it safely.  Route finding and taking careful notice of my surroundings surpasses real and mental obstacles.

I love showcasing my photographs and video from these adventures.  Sharing the subtle nuances of climbing and snowboarding a distant line is very fulfilling.
