Steve is one of Nat Hab's most senior guides and is in charge of our outdoor activities programs, from cross-country skiing to snowshoeing. He gained his appreciation for the outdoors as a youngster on Cape Cod amidst whales and other abundant marine life. Steve has hiked and climbed nearly every substantial peak in the Adirondacks (as well as Mount Rainier several times—barefoot, with bricks in his pack!) and taught naturalist and wilderness skills for Outward Bound in Maine. He has produced several videos on wildlife, including an acclaimed video on the stranding of pilot whales on Cape Cod. His naturalist skills center on the unique plants encountered on our trips. Steve attended Skidmore College with Nat Hab founder and director Ben Bressler and tends to enjoy "bending the elbow" with Ben when they are together in Boulder. Career yellow cards: too numerous to list.
