Steven is a Colorado Native, and grew up climbing, skiing and fly-fishing around the state. He first started climbing at a summer camp when he was 8 years old and immediately fell in love with it. Steven is passionate about sharing his love and stoke for the mountains and teaching the skills associated with safely accessing them. When not guiding or recreating, Steven greatly enjoys Search and Rescue, and can always be caught nerding out on the physics that goes into climbing and technical rope rescue.

Hopping between KMAC in the summer season, and Crested Butte, CO where he is a Ski Patroller in the wintertime, Steven graduated from Western Colorado University majoring in Business. Steven is a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician, AMGA Single Pitch Instructor, and is a Search and Rescue resource for RMNP.
