Passionate for the outdoors and the gear that gets us there, It is my pleasure and joy to be currently incubating the amazing team that will be: Arc'Teryx Los Angeles. We are the leading designers and manufacturers of innovative high-end technical designs of outdoor equipment and clothing. Our company is staffed with amazing design team and incredible employees who, only through their great talent and experience, make Arc'teryx's continued and great success possible.

Building teams is so fun! Starting from the ground up and fitting together the jigsaw of human personalities... While I love working on my own, developing projects and building relationships with my community I also love speaking to groups about topics and ideas that I am passionate about. I find training groups or individuals personally rewarding, whether it be a business need, internal development or coaching someone to work on solutions in overcoming fears in life or outdoor pursuits.

Outside of the career, my passions are sport and trad climbing, mountaineering, back country ski, surfing and cycling on and off pavement. My Best Day? : Traveling the west coast in my well loved 2005 Chevy Express AWD... 240k miles and we keep rolling, Squamish to Sayulita.
