Biography: Early on in my life, I realized I was going to be spending a lot of time in the mountains. I was born at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah. I started skiing and climbing at a very early age, and knew before I went to high school that I was going to pursue a career as a heli-ski/ mountaineering guide.Two decades later, I have been fortunate enough to have my profession take me to some of the most amazing places: Antarctica, Alaska, Chile, Irian Jaya, Argentina, and many more... it is so amazing to see how diverse the planet is and see all it has to offer!Over the last few years, I have focused on working on action sport production. I have worked with Brain Farm Cinema, Matchstick Productions, Red Bull Media House, TGR, DC, Burton, Warren Miller. Having a front row seat of that action is priceless!Due to the nature of my job, I always have a lot of guiding and safety equipment on me, but I still always try to take a camera. You never know when the click of a button can become timeless! The Shot: This shot was taken in the Tordrillo Mountains, Alaska in 2010. I was there with an all-star crew: Travis Rice, John Jackson, Mark Landvik and the Brain Farm Cinema production crew. We were filming a segment for "The Art of FLIGHT". We were anxious to get on the snow after arriving to a week of bad weather. We didn't know that the mountains were going to welcome us with incredible conditions for the following two weeks, but something seemed pretty special on this initial evening. This was literally the first drop of the trip. After putting the boys on the ridge, I shot this image from the heli as - Friday 23rd April 2010 (1 Picture)
