Bryan was born and raised in the tiniest of towns, Virginville, PA (you can look it up). After life on a ranch, the call for bigger and better things came along and he moved to Colorado to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder and helped found the CU Alpine Club. Subsequently, he honed his passion for guiding while leading underclassmen on rock climbing, mountain biking and rafting trips across the American West. Bryan graduated with a degree in Archaeology, as well as emphasis in History, Classics, Astronomy, Geology and Communication. After University, he moved to Breckenridge, Colorado to further pursue his outdoor interests where he still resides when he is not guiding or traveling.Bryan has guided trips and personally traveled to hundreds of destinations in over 60 countries. His adventures range from alpine mountaineering, climbing and snowboarding through the Himalayas in Nepal and Kashmir, driving overland 4X4 safari across Africa, to guiding multiple whitewater expeditions down the Grand Canyon right here in the U.S. Bryan has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, trekked across Patagonia, and dove with whale sharks in the Philippines. In the last decade Bryan has spent the majority of his summers guiding trips in U.S. national parks and helping design trips as well as hire and train aspiring guides. Bryan is also a fierce scrabble competitor, trivia aficionado, an avid hunter and pretty stellar in the kitchen (especially with wild game).
