Thom has spent thirty years in the outdoor adventure field working with a wide variety of populations. This work has been with a variety of Outward Bound type programs and guiding companies. Personnel travel and adventures have taken him from the Arctic watershed to the deserts of Mexico, sailing in the Caribbean and a long walk through Nepal and Tibet. Raising two children and married to a National Park Ranger while living outside of Rocky Mountain National Park provided great opportunities to play in the Colorado backcountry, skiing, hiking and climbing. His personal philosophy is that we all have a great deal to learn from one another as well as from wilderness experiences and adventures. So let the fun, learning and growing begin as soon as possible.
