Who is Paxton?

My path in life has been a windy one. I was born in Vancouver, Canada. I grew up alpine skiing, but when I moved to California for college I began to surf with a passion. Years later I (re)discovered backcountry skiing. And through it all, I was always riding my bike(s) – in the mountains, on trips and commuting to work – biking has always been a constant.
When I turned fifty, I decided to stop sitting behind a computer and make my passions my profession. I started ski patrolling in the winters and bike guiding in the summers, and I haven’t looked back. I think the smiles in my photos say it all.
