I have been a student of the Canyon for thirty years, including rafting the Colorado River and running the Canyon solo rim-to-rim.

I grew up in Alaska, mountain trekking and backpacking in grizzly country. An avid wilderness explorer, I have floated the Yukon River, skied Denali, summited Mt. Shasta, and kayaked the Northern California coast. In 1972, I was a member of the first south-to-north land expedition to cross the Gibson and Great Victorian deserts of the Australian Outback.

As a Wilderness First Responder and a twenty-year practitioner of Backcountry Acupressure First-aid, teacher, and healer, I mentor others on how to use these methods for their recovery from trauma, injury, fatigue, and altitude sickness. I have had ample experience on the trail in helping wilderness travelers who found themselves at risk.

With a lifetime of nature connection awareness and being CyberTracker International Certified, I share these skills with all who accompany me in the Backcountry.

As an award-winning, internationally published poet and writer, I am currently authoring a book, Gallery: Reflections in the Grand Canyon, my tribute to the Grand Canyon.
