Mountains have been my passion since childhood, growing up at every opportunity I will venture the mountains of Cedars of Lebanon and later in the French Alps.

During business years I was indoors 14 hours per day waiting for the weekend to be on the White mountains, last 14 years after terminating my business I began to travel the World pursuing my childhood dreams of climbing high altitude mountains.

Climbed in Nepal, Argentina, Africa, Ecuador, Peru, Mongolia, China, lead 3 trips to Orizaba Mexico many peaks in the Cascades, Grand Teton and many peaks in California Sierras including Mt Whitney 11 times. Also backpacked Machu Pichu, Grand Canyon, John Muir trail, Glacier N.P. San Bernardino N.F. CA San Gorgonio Wilderness CA and hiked in many National Parks.

As AMC NH Chapter Class one leader I hike and lead all year around mostly the northern Presidential's in the White Mountains.

I am also member of American Alpine Club. Himalayan Mountain Club and Summit Sensations Mountaineering Club.
