What is your hiking experience ? Would you rate yourself as beginner/intermediate, moderate, experienced? pace is slow, average, or fast? Your hardest hike was....? Have you ever organized or lead a group hike?

I am a moderate to experienced hiker. My hardest hike was a two week trek from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland. I have never organized or lead a group hike on an official basis, but have gotten friends together for hikes.

What is your favorite trail adventure experience and greatest challenge?

All my favorites were in Switzerland where there is a fantastic system of ground transportation and cable cars. I liked being able to hike up all day and then take a cable car down at the end of the day.

Do you hike all seasons ? What gear do you own and know how to use?

Yes, I hike all seasons. I have snowshoes and Hillsound crampons for the winter.

Do you have a hiking goal, such as reaching all NH 4000ft peaks? NE100 highest?

No hiking goals other than to get out there as often as possible.

What days of the week do you like to hike ?

I am available all days of the week.


Hello - I live in Gloucester, MA after having lived in Switzerland for the past 4 years. I became an avid hiker overseas and really miss climbing those mountains!
