Koby grew up and found his love for the outdoors in Oregon. In highschool, he joined a student run mountaineering club where he discovered his passion for climbing, skiing, and outdoor leadership. After highschool, Koby moved to Maine and in 2017 graduated from Bates College with a degree in Environmental Studies. Koby’s guiding career began in New Hampshire with winter ascents of Mount Washington and technical ice climbing throughout the valley. He soon found his way back to the west coast where he currently guides ascents of large glaciated mountains throughout the Cascades and Alaska. Koby is stoked to guide and to share his passion for learning and living in the outdoors with everyone.
