Your host



During the school year I teach high school music in Shiprock, New Mexico on the Northern Navajo reservation. In the summers, I run a small tour business in my hometown of Cortez, Colorado. I've been guiding tours since my summer breaks when I was in high school and live and play in Southwest Colorado year round. As a teacher, I love to work with people and share my passion and knowledge for this area!
