About me

Brad grew up in a small forested town in southern Maine, only an hour and a half from the White Mountains of New Hampshire where he developed a passion for the outdoors at an early age. He would go on to attend the University of New Hampshire as a student in Outdoor Education, a degree designed for those passionate in the outdoors and aspiring to make a career in guiding and teaching others in the outdoors. During this time, Brad learned how to climb safely and responsibly through the classes he was required to take for his major. He would spend every fair-weather weekend climbing multi-pitch adventures in the White Mountains to refine his skills. In the summertime away from school, Brad was guiding backpacking and canoeing trips in northern Maine, but would still make the two-plus hour trek to New Hampshire every day off he had to get a few pitches in.

When Brad finished his time in college, he moved to Arizona on not much more than a whim and began to truly explore the various climbing potential of the western US, climbing in places such as Yosemite, Red Rock, the North Cascades and more. Brad has constantly been focused on making himself a better climber, putting much of his energy into learning technical systems to be as efficient as possible on the wall. He now splits his time guiding in Arizona and Colorado, following the nicer weather to continue to provide rock climbing experiences to those who are seeking to learn. Brad thoroughly enjoys bringing people into the mountains and being a part of their journey when developing these skills for themselves.

Brad is a Wilderness First Responder and a Certified American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Single-Pitch Instructor. He will be taking his AMGA Rock Guide Course this Spring.
