I fell in love with the southwest when I went on my first river trip in Grand Canyon in 2002. I then spent the next 20 years exploring the public ancestral lands of the region and working to preserve and protect them. I studied native fish and surveyed sediment in Grand Canyon, led volunteer groups on research and hands-on conservation projects, worked with young people to advocate for environmental and social justice in the region, planned field trips for members and supporters of a non-profit conservation organization and worked as a commercial tour guide and river guide. I spend all my free time on public land, whether hiking up mountains in national forests, backpacking or canyoneering through desert canyons on BLM land, or rowing my boat down rivers across the west. These are the places I go to find solitude, adventure, peace and rejuvenation.
Southwest Jeep Adventures is a culmination of my time spent in the southwest, and combines all my experience, knowledge and passions from the last 20 years into a new passion to help others experience the same love and respect for this landscape that I do.
I look forward to working with you to put together an adventure of a lifetime!
The number of people visiting the national parks, forests and monuments of the southwest is on the rise. This can cause lasting impacts to the land, and we encourage responsible and respectful recreation. We are passionate about protecting and preserving the lands and cultures of the region and we hope you will be too.
