$15 at a yard sale in rural New Hampshire bought me freedom and forever ingrained my love of travel. My steel-framed 10-speed Peugeot opened my eyes—and my world—to a much larger arena. Born in California, raised in New Hampshire, resident of the world, at home in the Pacific Northwest. My passion is discovering the hidden gems and local customs of a region and then showing these new secrets to people and creating an experience. I realized this passion for guiding in the year 1999 on Mt. Rainier. I guided a few friends to the top of this amazing peak, saw the look on their faces, and was hooked. Since then, I have been blessed to live and guide in some amazing places. Some of my favorites include Italy, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Moab, Sonoma, San Juan Islands, New Zealand, Mexico, and Ecuador.
Silvia and I started Alchemy Tours with the vision of offering clients something amazing. A remarkable thing happens on trip with us—whether it is a long weekend, or a more intensive Teacher Training program abroad. We are always inspired by Paolo Coehlo’s The Alchemist and love to see this wonderful blend of yoga and active movement (cycling, hiking, surfing, horseback riding, running and more) turn to veritable gold. People learn more about themselves, and the yoga journey that Silvia takes us on while on retreat is her to the max.
When not guiding, you’ll find me back in Seattle enjoying quality time with those I love. I enjoy trail running, cycling, reading, cooking and educating myself about fine wines and craft ales. An ideal day includes stopping at the farmer’s market to dream up an elaborate dinner, then cooking and enjoying with family and friends. As those closest to me can attest, I always urge you to, “Try Life. Live it!”
