    In the next five years I look to have partnerships developed around the community and state to provide tourist a holistic and opportunity filled trip to Alaska. I look to expand the packages I will offer, and grow into the adventure tour of Western Alaska. I hold 10 years of experience in finance/banking, over 12 years of experience in Alaska camping and backpacking, and will be providing visitors and guest with a perspective of Alaska that is rarely offered. I have worked with land management and federal agencies to understand the permitting process and look to be the first tour guide in the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve.

  • Self Identified Competition

    1.) A gold mining bed and breakfast resort that is located in Nome. They have annually grown their business since inception due to the thirst for adventure people have when coming to Nome. They provide some tours outside of Nome but focus mainly on gold mining at their property. 2.) An adventure tour company based on the eastern part of the Nome region near Council and White Mountain. As they are right on the river, they focus mainly on fishing, bear hunting, and ecotours. They provide tours all over the Peninsula but their main stronghold is on the Council and White Mountain region. 3.) A birdwatching and tour bus style business. They provide visitors that come from cruise ships and other locations with day trips in and around Nome focused on the history of Nome with the Gold Rush and Iditarod. I will offer more of the raw adventure in the form of backpacking and camping. I strive to be the first hiking tour into the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve and provide visitors a chance to view the place where humans walked over from Asia many thousands of years ago. Views of granite tors and caribou and extremely high, along with the chance of viewing many of Alaska's other wildlife and mountains. Emerging the visitors in a multi day journey to see what the Seward Peninsula in Alaska has to offer.
