I came to Idaho from Philadelphia in 1980 on a Greyhound bus, and I’ve been outfitting and guiding in Idaho and Alaska ever since. In 1996, I met Michelle, a Challis, Idaho native. We were married in August of 1998 and soon after, our two sons, Steven and Joel, joined us to make a family.
Idaho Wilderness Company, is the outfitting adventure business that we started and have thoroughly relished through these years. The office view is phenomenal. We live in the remote town of Challis, Idaho. Challis has a population of about one thousand and is located just outside the Frank Church “River Of No Return” Wilderness. Challis is sixty miles from the next equal sized town, and is a two hour drive from the nearest Walmart. Our home is located on the Salmon River with migrating salmon & steelhead, elk, whitetail, mule deer and much more right out the back door.
I’m Past President of the Idaho Outfitter and Guides Association (IOGA).
