Meet The Team
I've spent the last 8 years trying all the ways you can explore the PNW. From boots to bikes to ropes or skis, you'll find me outdoors year-round. If I'm not at Gearhouse, I'm out testing your next adventure. Come find me!
Head of Community
I’ve called adventure my home since I was 18 years old. Whether it's adventures in the outdoors, in the urban wilderness, with new people or new projects, I love to learn, share and explore. Most recently you’ll find me snowboarding, hiking, paddleboarding amd generally in places you don't expect! ;)
Head of Adventures
I bring fifteen years as a bike mechanic, the skills of a mountaineering guide, and the contagious curiosity of a lifelong learner. Raised by passionate naturalists and never a fit for the conventional classroom, my curiosity and creativity are unlocked by life outdoors.
Head of Growth
Ben loves to trail run and ski mountaineer, and lead trips in these activities around the country and globe. He also believes in conserving and stewarding our wild places, and is a part-time volunteer wilderness ranger
I grew up outside of Boston and moved to Seattle 3 years ago. I spend weekdays taking neighborhood walks near Green Lake. On the weekends you can find me snowboarding, or cycling around local trails when the weather’s right!
Lead Gear Wrangler
Though I was born in Arizona, I have lived in the PNW for most of my life and the accessibility to abundant trees and towering waterfalls opened my eyes to the beauty this world has to offer. I love spending my free time outdoors, going fast and having fun. Making fresh lines in open powder fields, or shralping berms at the local bike park, and I find great joy in the process of capturing these moments with my camera. Big gear nerd, and Lead Technician at Gearhouse (though "Gear Nerd" should be my official title). Here to share my knowledge and experience life outdoors with great company! Let's get out there!
Adventurer in Residence
I am mainly into skiing and rock climbing, but starting to dabble in mountaineering. WFR and AIARE 1 certified.
I grew up in Montana and moved to Seattle this past September. You'll find me year round in the mountains, whether its shredding the slopes or hiking peaks, I'll find a way to get outside for a new adventure!
I am a California native whose passion for the outdoors landed me and my partner (fellow Gearhouse member Sean!) in Seattle three years ago. I love working at Gearhouse for its fantastic community and mission to build an inclusive outdoors community. When I'm not in the Gearhouse shop, you can find her paddling in the Sound, browsing other people's bookshelves, or unsuccessfully trying to tire out my dog Olive.
