“I have enjoyed a fairly diverse and varied experience in the tourism business ranging from wilderness guide to general manager of two well known and highly respected resort lodges. For ten years from 1980 to 1989 I served as the Lodge Manager and then Vice President and General Manger of Glacier Bay Lodge, the concession hotel at Glacier Bay National Park. I served as general manager of the Kenai Princess Lodge in Cooper Landing, Alaska in 1990 and 1991. The Kenai Princess is a premier wilderness resort operated by Princess Tours.
I returned to Gustavus in 1992 and accepted an operations manager position with Alaska Discovery. Alaska Discovery, at that time, was Alaska’s most well known and celebrated wilderness guiding company. They offered wilderness trips throughout Alaska from the Arctic to Glacier Bay via kayak, river raft, or hiking. During that time I guided a number of wilderness trips in addition to my administrative duties.
In 2003, I formed Alaska-In-Depth, a small tour consulting business which I currently still own and operate. Alaska-In-Depth organizes and operates educationally based tours exclusively in Alaska for various clients, principally Elderhostel, Osher Life Long Learning, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Additionally, Alaska-In-Depth provides educational workshops specializing in the training of naturalists and customer service for tourism employees and management.”
