Mark is a native New Englander who has always been passionate about skiing, a calling which naturally led him towards a life in the mountains. With a decade of guiding and climbing instructing plus a degree in Wilderness Leadership under his belt, Mark completed his full guide certification in 2008, becoming an internationally licensed IFMGA/UIAGM guide, the highest achievement for mountain guides worldwide.
Mark loves to fill his days with all sorts of wilderness travel, from river and sea kayaking to backpacking for up to 30 days at a time in the field. Viewing guiding more as a lifestyle than a career, Mark is easily able to sustain his passion for working in the mountains. This also keeps his relationship with his clients fresh and exciting and ensures time to balance family life with his “office” in the hills.
