Growing up in New Hampshire instilled the value of small communities and power of the outdoors from an early age. After growing up in the White Mountains, Brad migrated to the West Coast to attend the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC. At UBC, he earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in History, with a minor in Japanese language. After university, he developed his skills as a teacher and instructor through work as an English teacher and counselor for students. Brad continued to thrive and use climbing for personal growth, which inspired him to pursue guiding and outdoor instruction. He has worked throughout Alaska, New Hampshire, the Pacific Northwest, Patagonia, and Spain. Brad’s aim with his work is to share the connection, appreciation, personal growth and humbleness he feels in the outdoors with others.
