Your guides

My road here started in outdoor ed class at Webster Groves Highschool. Since then I've received a bachelor's degree in Outdoor Leadership, lived on four continents, raced enduros all over the world, have over 100 hours of wilderness medical training, and have spent the last 12 years working in the outdoor industry. I've done these things because I love being outside, I work with Stl Mtb because few things make me happier than sharing my experience and passion for the natural world.

I've always loved riding my bicycle. since as far back as I can remember. From my first trip to Ramp Rider's at 10 years old to my First Cat 1 XC Podium Finish. Since then I've worked as a professional guide leading bike vacations all over the country, I've raced countless MTB races throughout the U.S. and have pedaled my bike in all but 6 states. 7 years ago I Started STL MTB Camps because I want to do my part to support, enable and grow the outdoor community of my hometown STL.
