From the foothills of Connecticut, to the mountains of Utah. It was an exodus that changed my life forever. 15 years later, my passion for the mountains has grown into a complete lifestyle. In the winter time, my days and nights are spent exploring the mountains in search of deep powder. During the summer months, I explore wild rivers in search of beautiful trout. Whether I'm skiing, climbing, or fishing, the goal is the same. Enjoy the natural wealth and beauty of wild places for as long as I can.
My camera is always by my side. It helps me document the places I go and things I do. One day when I'm old and immobile, I will be grateful that I lugged that heavy thing everywhere I went!

These were perfect little tents for a multi sport adventure. We traversed a portion of the Uintas' north slope on mountain bikes, connecting segments of trail with trout streams. The Nemo Obi tents were light enough, but gave us all the protection we needed from the unrelenting thunderstorms.
My brother and I used this tent for a 4 day mountain bike trip. I like the packable size, and splitting it up between two people makes it a super light setup. Its definitely tight in there with two guys over 6ft, so I wouldn't want to share this tent with someone I didn't like. Each person gets a door and a vestibule which helps a lot in such tight quarters. The tent held up well to the pouring rain which we encountered every day. I'd recommend it if you want a light, minimalist, functional setup. If you are concerned with space, check out the three man version.
You can only take so many photos of an energy bar in its element. But its more about where that energy bar can take you anyways. I've always got a kates bar in my pocket. Its amazing how these things will pick you up if you're feeling low!
Its nice to have a bar that is easy to eat in the mountains, when you're working hard and almost have to force yourself to eat. Kates bars don't freeze, so you can actually eat them when its cold out! Imagine that. The mango/coconut/cashew combo here is incredible, so I actually enjoy eating these on the go, which is great.
I think the handle bar is my favorite flavor from kates. The cherries are perfect, combining nicely with the other ingredients, making them very easy to eat. Its like a candy bar.
This bar has a peanut butter, chocolate, flaxseed, hempseed theme going on and I love it. There are no cherries in here, like the description suggests. Its absolutely delicious and I can't get tired of this one. Kates bars don't freeze like other bars, I like that too.
I'm definitely a big fan of this fiberglass rod. It was the first and only glass rod I've ever had, so I didn't really know what to expect. I fell in love with the softness right away, the feeling was completely different than graphite. Its a joy to cast a dry fly but will also huck the meat.
these are my favorite glasses from Smith, without a doubt. I can wear them for an entire day of fishing and my eyes wouldn't have it any other way. The Polarchromic glass is key for changing light conditions when you are on the water all day. It's amazing to see how effective the polarizing qualities of the glass are at cutting down glare on a whole variety of water surfaces. These shades really bring the fishing experience to another level! I love them. Copper mirror or ignitor for trout fishing all day long.
