Co-Chair and Treasurer
I moved up to Northern Minnesota as a young person, with a deep desire to connect to the land. I was slowly accepting winter as a necessary part of things when I stumbled into backcountry skiing. This completely changed my outlook on winter and greatly improved my overall health and happiness. I am dedicating my time to Superior Highland Backcountry in order to make the beauty of these experiences possible for as many other people as we can.
I'm an anomaly; a later in life skier and East/West coast transplant to NE Minnesota. I love the freedom of moving through the woods and mountains on skis which is why I joined Elli, Rory, Fred and Lisa on the board of SHB. I'm a physician who lived and worked in Cook County for years, but now live in Duluth with my wife and 14 year old twin boys.
