I grew up in Central New York and moved west to Utah in 2000. In 2005 I moved to Alaska and began running consistently again for the first time in 10 years. After a couple years of racing in Alaska I began racing long distance trail races in the lower 48 in 2008. Since then I have raced over 30 races, winning most of them, and setting several prominent course records along the way. The most notable of these being Western States 100 (2010), Wasatch 100 (2008 + 2009), Mountain Masochist 50 (2009), Crow Pass Crossing (2007, 2009, 2010 + 2011), Chuckanut 50k (2011), and Ultra Race of Champions 100k (2011). I was voted Ultrarunning magazine's 2009 and 2010 "Ultrarunner of the Year". In February of 2012 I took on my most challenging adventure yet - the 350 mile Iditarod Trail Invitational - winning the foot division of the race in 6d23h30m. I now reside in Juneau, Alaska with my wonderful wife, Corle, and her magical daughter, Elle. I don't race much anymore, but I still run in the mountains most everyday and consider Juneau to be the greatest place on earth to be a mountain runner.

I was born and raised in Juneau, Alaska where I now live with Geoff, and my daughter, Elle. I trained as a massage therapist at the Green Mountain Institute, and might plan to offer massage sessions to interested participants during the camp, if time allows (varies from session to session). I recently completed a masters of counseling psychology and I'm in the process of figuring out my next steps forward from there. I have also taken up trail running in the past few years, and will likely be joining in on some of the runs during the camp. I am an experienced cook/baker and will be helping with the food planning and preparation (as well as countless other tasks) during the camp.
