For more than fifteen years he has traveled in pursuit of this passion. Max began his career as a mountain guide while earning his bachelors degree in Earth Sciences at the University of Maine. While in school his studies took him to Denali National Park, Alaska and the Cordillera Blanca, Peru. Since 2009 he has been traveling to climb and guide in Alaska, Canadian Rockies, Cascades, Rainier, Red Rock, Sierras, South America, Tetons, Yosemite and more. Currently Max lives in Boulder, Colorado with his partner Katie and their dog Dexter.
Max is an American Mountain Guide Association certified Rock and Alpine Guide, as well as an accomplished alpinist. Max has been climbing since 2004 and traveling to the greater ranges in pursuit of his passion. Currently, Max’s greatest passion is ice, mixed and alpine climbing. He enjoys steep technical ice and mixed climbing on long routes in the mountains. When he isn’t guiding, Max is training to improve his own technical skill and quiet his mental landscape in constant pursuit of his next objective. He can be found honing his craft on the many cliffs surrounding his home in Boulder, Colorado or up in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Max primarily works in Rocky Mountain National Park and along the Front Range of Colorado. However, he frequently travels to Ouray, Red Rock, Rainier, North Cascades National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Canadian Rockies and abroad for climbing and guiding.
