Currently living in Santiago, Chile, but from Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. I was a professional mountain/canyon guide for multi-day backcountry backpacking trips throughout the American Southwest. Grand Canyon National Park, Havasupai Falls, Sedona, Antelope Canyon and many other beautiful places I was lucky enough to call my office. I love to backpack internationally solo, as well as traveling along the way with friends and family. I am always in search of the next hidden gem, and seeing the world how the locals see it. Currently, I am also a professional wine sommelier, who always is in search of the perfect bottle (have not found it yet, and hope I never do!) Growing up in wine country has taught me to love the vines, and on trips you can find me in the local wine shops, vineyards and bodegas!
