A native of Maine, Tom has been guiding and teaching wilderness survival skills for well over a decade. His love of adventure and sharing expedition skills with others has led him all over North America, from the whitewater canyons of Arizona to Ungava bay in Northern Quebec to the tundra of Alaska. An aficionado of all things circumpolar, Tom currently teaches traditional winter travel and northern native studies for Kroka Expeditions outdoor high school semester program. For years he guided dog-sledding trips with Mahoosuc guide service, a northern roots outfitter in Maine. A practitioner of traditional camp craft and survival skills, you might experience spunhungins, fire by friction, and stone pizza ovens on Tom’s trips. Tom’s favorite part of guiding is the opportunity to help people connect with wild places, and he loves seeing people become more “at home” in the wilderness. When he is not on expedition he can be found working with wood, fixing things, or playing guitar to his baby daughter. Tom, his wife Lily, and baby Elsa split their year between Fairbanks, Alaska and their off-grid homestead in the Siskiyou mountains of Northern California.
