Before joining Journey Quest, Steve served as a supervisor and guide for 15 years at Camp Redcloud in Lake City, Colorado. His role with Redcloud included training staff, marketing, risk-management, and guiding climbing and mountaineering trips.

Steve is an avid mountaineer, climber, hiker and skier. He is a certified AMGA Single Pitch Instructor and Wilderness EMT-Intermediate. When not out in the mountains, Steve enjoys music, gourmet cooking, reading, graphics design, computers, and just hangin’ out.

During the off-season, Steve is a moonlight web-developer and graphics designer, and often volunteers with the local EMS and Search and Rescue teams.
