Ben grew up climbing, skiing, and fly-fishing in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and has been lucky to continue living in this great place. Ben began guiding fly-fishing at age 18 while attending college at the University of Montana, where he studied cartography and resource conservation. At age 23, he began a career as a mountain guide and began work for Exum mountain guides in Jackson, Wyoming, where he lived for 5 Years. Recently, Ben has moved back to the mountains of his childhood and now resides in Red Lodge, MT, with his Wife Leslie and his Dog Cash. He now splits time managing a family fly-fishing business, ski guiding in Cooke City, and of course, getting into the mountains as much as possible.
