    As the product of two outdoor-loving and adventure-seeking folks, some of my fondest and earliest memories involve exploring the great outdoors. I grew up road tripping around the US in my family's VW camper van, backpacking through the Sierra, and participating in 7 years of outdoor education, which took me down the Colorado and Kern Rivers, out to Joshua Tree and Escalante, and around the Channel Islands (just to name a few).

    Most recently, I have taken my love for the outdoors and pursued it professionally--guiding backpacking trips and leading outdoor education programs all over the Western US. It's an incredible thing to be able to share and facilitate the gift of outdoor recreation and learning. While the Sierra Nevada will always feel like home, I love getting out to new areas and seeing what this big ol' beautiful world has to offer.

    Whether you are just dipping your toes in the water or gearing up to beat the fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail, I would love to chat about your adventures and get you set up with just the right equipment for your needs!

    Tanner is great!
    We are unsure if our trip to Glacier & Yellowstone is going to happen in August (due to COVID 19) but I wanted to start looking at hiking boots, jackets and backpacks. Tanner provided great options along with his own personal description of each item. Considering I've never "hiked" before, it was very beneficial and appreciated. In addition, Tanner is very responsive and friendly. I can't say enough good things!

    A fun and seamless experience!
    Tanner was tremendously helpful! He paid close attention to my preferences, and was thoughtful in gathering the initial options. He then proceeded to answer my infinite follow-up questions with a positive and friendly attitude! He definitely had my best interest in mind, and I totally trust his judgment. He also just seems like a genuine, cool dude you’d want to go camping with. I’d recommend him to anyone! Can’t wait for my order to arrive!

    Awesome dude
    Can't say enough great things about this guy. He's a jedi level ski expert that apparently takes ridiculous photos in the summer. If I was buying some camping gear, I wouldn't hesitate to talk to him. Full disclosure: I work with Tanner.
