Bryan grew up skiing & hiking in the Pacific Northwest. During high school, he became a volunteer ski patroller on Mt. Hood and began his wilderness medicine training. That experience influenced his path to working in Aspen, Steamboat, Telluride, Jackson and earning his BSBA from the University of Denver. Bryan is a career firefighter/EMT for a large urban fire department serving the suburbs of Portland, Oregon. On days off you can find him skinning up the north side of Mt Hood or chasing the sun on the east side of the Cascade.
