Hi my name is Gin which is short for Virginia! Welcome to beautiful Alaska! I am from Fairbanks but relocated to Southeast Alaska after graduating with my Masters in Music at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I'm an opera singer turned zipline guide! It was my hope to make my way out of The Last Frontier but fell in love with the area and since then have made Juneau my home. What an adventure it has been so far owning and operating Alaska Zipline Adventures with my best friend and husband, Davy. We love sharing this special place and the thrill of zipping through the trees with everyone we meet and have made some lasting friendships along the way! When I am not helping take care of our guests and guides, I love hiking, running, listening to music, drinking a good cup of coffee, cooking (and eat) Brazilian food and playing with our rescue puppy, Arnie! I can't wait to spend another summer wearing rain boots and showing you all a good time! Come explore the rainforest with us! Happy zipping!
Hi, I'm Davy. I grew up in Tennessee, but after daydreaming for years about experiencing the Alaskan wilderness, I moved to Fairbanks where I studied music at the University of Alaska. I soon learned that Alaska has more to offer than you can imagine! Alaska is also where I met my wonderful wife, Gin. We feel so lucky to be the leaders of AZA and can't wait to share this wonderful place and the joy of zipping through the forest with all of our visitors this summer. Aside from helping take people into the Alaskan rainforest, some things I really enjoy are good sushi, listening to a wide range of music, finding new trails to hike and having breakfast for dinner. We hope to see you in Juneau soon!
Hey everyone!! My name is Austin Andrew! I am originally from California but have lived all over the country (dirt bagging) from Oregon to Colorado. I love this beautiful country that I get to call home. I am excited to spend my first summer up here in Alaska and have found the start of my next adventure up here at AZA and am ready to get going! I love just about everything outdoors. I have spent my life hiking, rock climbing, mountaineering, backpacking, mountain biking and just about anything outdoors you can think of. I recently finished up studying Outdoor Adventure Leadership at Southern Oregon University (I studied having fun in the wilderness.) I listen to every genre of music and I am not afraid to embarrass myself with some insane dance moves. I found myself spending my days chasing adventures and enjoying the greatest resource this country holds (the wilderness areas and wild spaces.) I hope you all are ready for an amazingly fun staff. I am stoked to be the a part of the management team up here at AZA, and I am looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful people that are headed this way for an amazing trip through the trees!
Greetings world travelers! My name is Cameron and I will have the distinct pleasure of guiding you all through the wondrous trees of Alaska this summer. This will be my third season with AZA, and I must say, “It's good to be back!” I hail from the bright and sunny city of Los Angeles and I am not your typical Californian. I am an avid rock climber, ice climber and mountaineer pursuing a professional career as a Mountain Guide after spending the last year training in the mountains. I have had the pleasure and fortuity to take these practices to places all over the US, Spain and the awe-inspiring mountain ranges here in Alaska. I can not wait to meet you all and show you this amazing area of the world through a truly unique experience!
Hello! My name is Cassidy! This will be my second season at Alaska Zip! My first season I was a guide and this season I’ll be moving to the office to work on marketing for the company. I can’t wait to be back in Juneau with such an amazing company. I recently graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho in Business Management and Marketing. Now that I don’t have so much homework, I look forward to spending more time doing my hobbies such as hiking, being outdoors, working out, meeting new people and spending time with my husband!
Hi! My name is Kelsey Jensen. I was born and raised in Arizona but I am currently living in southern Utah working on a Bachelors Degree in Geology. In my free time I love to be outside! Some of my favorite outdoor pastimes include rock climbing and hiking. I also love taking photos of all my adventures too! I'm very excited to be returning for my third season at Alaska Zipline Adventures and love the opportunity it gives me to be outdoors and to share a part of Juneau with new zippers!
How’s it going travelers! My name is Linnell Bush and I am excited to be one of your guides for another summer with AZA. I am a Midwesterner from the good ol' land of Lincoln, which is in Illinois. I do enjoy the outdoors, but not as much as I love sports. The best thing is to be able to play a sport outdoors! My favorite things currently are basketball and learning to snowboard which I did this past winter at the local ski area, Eaglecrest! I am hoping to start my Masters in Education this fall here in Juneau. So I’ll be sticking around! See you guys on the mountain!
Hi everyone! My name is Camille. I am originally a Colorado girl but have been lucky to live in Idaho, Utah, and Alaska. I love hiking, rock climbing, swimming, camping, and kicking back by a roasting fire to play the ukulele. I have always loved being outside in the mountains so working at the zipline course was a no-brainer. This is my second year working with AZA and I can't wait to make some fun memories with you all up in the treetops!
Hey everyone! My name is Sierra and I was born and raised here in Juneau. I am 18 years old and very excited to attend Western Washington University this fall to study Environmental Science and Native American Studies. A few of my hobbies include spending time with my dog, going on long drives out the road to catch the sunset, hanging out with my great friends and, of course, being around my crazy family. I also enjoy being in the woods and on the beach. Being part Alaskan Native has let me embrace this great place to its full potential. I hope you all enjoy this beautiful place as much as I do!
Hey peeps! This is year two for me at AZA and I'm so excited to share my summer with all you beautiful souls! Juneau is where I call home with my son and we try to enjoy all that it has to offer, such as hiking, camping and hula hooping! This fall I'll be heading to school so let's zip through the trees as much as possible before I have to study away!
Hello there, my name is Shale Kibby and this will be my first year working with everyone at AZA. I'm excited to zip around in the trees this summer and give people an Alaskan tour from a unique perspective. Although this is my first year working up at the mountain, that doesn't mean I'm not familiar with Juneau. My family has been in Juneau for generations and I'm working on keeping it that way. I'm a very active person and I enjoy working on my Dog Treat & Toy business (I love animals and have 5 baby chicks right now!), making coffee at a local shop, deck-handing on a charter boat, taking hikes and camping. I'm always enjoying Alaska and I'm happy to have the opportunity this summer to share part of our town with you!
Hi, my name is Adam, and I'll be enjoying my first summer in Alaska this year high up in the trees! I recently graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a degree in Anthropology. With an emphasis on Archaeology and some experience in the field, I hope to get involved in the cultural history of Southeast Alaska. Being from rural Missouri, I share the same love for the great outdoors that many Alaskans do, and plan on doing a great deal of hiking, camping, and fishing while I'm here. I also have a great passion for travel and love seeing the world. I look forward to meeting you up in the canopy of the Tongass!
Hey everybody! My name is Cara and I am so excited to zip with you all this summer! I'm originally from Portland, OR but am currently a psychology student at Whitman College over in Walla Walla, WA. When I'm not out traveling and exploring or studying in the library, I love nothing more than spending time working with horses in any way I can. I absolutely love animals and am the proud owner of a miniature horse named Monte! Other hobbies of mine include rock climbing, photography, theatre, hiking and working with kids. If you like animals, Disney, or a lot of laughs, you'll be in for a good time. I can't wait to meet you all and teach you the ropes!
Ahoy! My name is Lukas Stocker and I’m super stoked to be spending the summer zipping through the tall trees of Juneau. I’m a junior Econ major from Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA, but originally hail from Flagler Beach, FL. After a couple summers lifeguarding on our beach and more recently a six-week voyage on a marine research tall ship, I’m ready for some mountains, cold air and stable land in my life. When I’m not fixing my perpetually broken car, I enjoy flying, kiteboarding, and creating over-complicated but colorful Excel spreadsheets. Having never been to Alaska before, I’m really looking forward to experiencing all the wonders America’s final frontier has to offer.
Hey there folks! My name is Sadie and I'm from a small town in Washington. Alaska's beauty and the adventures it holds have drawn me here! Some of the things that keep me chipper and stoked on life are yoga, burritos, hiking, running, mushroom hunting, the rain and oh so much more! I've got a mondo crush on Mother Nature, her mountains and everything she holds. I am so thrilled to have this opportunity of zipping through the trees this summer here in Alaska!!! Catch y'all on the flip side!
Hey everyone! My name is Andy Russell and I am from the small town of New Philadelphia, Ohio. I recently graduated from Malone University with a major in Psychology and a minor in Outdoor Leadership. I have traveled several times with my family to the mountains of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and Alaska. It's with them and our adventures where I developed my passion and love for the outdoors. Whether it is hiking, biking, climbing, or throwing a football around, if it's outdoors, I'm all about it. While this is my first summer working in Alaska as a zip guide, I am no stranger to the outdoor adventure world. I spent my last two summers working at a YMCA camp in Colorado as a high ropes course and zip line facilitator. If I'm not high in the trees or standing on top of a mountain, you will probably find me playing guitar and listening to music. I can't wait to meet you all and soar through the trees of the Alaskan rain forest this summer! See you all on the lines!
Hi everyone! My name is Gracie, I am 16 years old and I am a student at Juneau Douglas High School. I will be a senior next year and after that I plan on attending college in California to get a degree in nursing. I was born in Juneau and I have lived between Juneau and Gustavus, Alaska my whole life. I love being outdoors and doing things like skiing, hiking, boating, and playing softball. I am excited to meet all of you and start my first summer with AZA!
Hi my name is Arnie! I am the newest member to the zipline family. Originally from California, Juneau is now my home and the perfect place to explore the forest and chase critters which is my favorite thing to do! I also love to take naps, lounge in the sun, get treats from the coffee shop girls and cuddle up in someone's lap. I will be the friendly face to greet you at the zipline!
