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!
Hi there! My name is Alicia and this is already my 4th summer at the Zipline. I’m a born and raised Alaskan and Juneauite and I couldn't imagine a better place to grow up. We have mountains, glaciers, rivers, the ocean, and so many more awesome things in our backyard. What more could you want!? However, I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and had to go see the world. I did a study abroad to Ireland a few years ago and I’ve spent the last year in Germany attempting to learn the language. After the summer my plan is to return to Germany to begin a Bachelors program. I love hiking, bonfires, wearing my Xtratuf rain boots, basically anything to do with the outdoors, and of course zipping through the trees. I can’t wait to meet all our zippers and to have a fantastic summer in the Tongass National Rainforest, regardless of rain or shine!
My name is Cassidy and I was born and raised in sunny Arizona. However, both of my parents grew up in Alaska so my love for this state developed as we came up to visit as a family in the summers. Currently, I am finishing my second year at BYU Idaho where I am working on a business degree. When I am not in class I am all about dance. I grew up performing all styles of dance (ballet, pointe, tap, hip hop, contemporary, modern, jazz and lyrical) but I also love most outdoor activities too. Some of my favorites are hiking, wakeboarding, fishing, hunting, camping, four wheeling, snowboarding and now snowshoeing. I am excited to spend my summer in the beautiful forests of Juneau and meeting new people!
Hey everyone! My name is Nicole and I am excited to join my sister Gin and her husband Davy to guide for their zipline business. What a fun way to spend the summer - exploring Juneau and flying through the trees! I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska but now live in Utah where I am currently attending Utah State University. Some of my favorite pastimes are hiking with my dogs, cooking, camping, going on drives in the country and riding my horse Ray. I've had the pleasure of visiting Juneau often and so excited to get to spend my summer in Alaska. Looking forward to zipping through the trees with you all!
Hey everyone! My name is Julia and I am originally from Fairbanks, Alaska. I graduated from Western Washington University in Bellingham a few years ago with a Bachelor’s in Political Science. I’m super excited to be back in Juneau for a few months before I head to London for my Master’s in Applied Theatre. Traveling is one of my very favorite things to do but I also firmly believe that Alaska is the best place you could ever grow up. I am so excited to spend my summer being outside and zipping through the trees with you in the state I love! When not outside enjoying the elements, I am a fan of reading or listening to the radio with a cup of tea and of course spontaneous dance parties! It is hard to not fall in love with Alaska and I think after a day with us you’ll see why we’re so proud to call it home. Zip with you soon!
Hey there! My name is Beth and I am a recent graduate from Wheaton College - a wonderful liberal arts school just outside of Chicago, Illinois. Born in England, but raised in New England, I somehow ended up a country-loving, mountain-climbing, adventure -seeking young adult. And, I suppose it's that spirit that has now lead me to Alaska Zip! This is my first summer in Juneau and it truly is a lifelong dream come true. I cannot think of any better way to combine my love of the outdoors and my love for people. I feel so very blessed and am excited to meet and have an adventure with all of you soon!!
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 first season with AZA, and I am looking forward to it immensely! I hail from the bright and sunny city of Los Angeles, California and am not your typical urbanite. I enjoy hiking, camping and exploring the beautiful nature that mother earth has provided us with. When I’m not hanging from a tree or climbing a large rock you can find me behind a camera as an aspiring cinematographer. I also enjoy many other outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing and off road motor sports. Let the ziplining commence!!!
Hello fellow zipliners! This will be my first season at AZA. I was born and raised in Cache Valley, Utah. My free time is spent rock climbing, backpacking, alpine touring, mountain biking, playing piano, cooking and as much traveling as I can get in! I love to learn and am currently studying at Utah State University in Outdoor Product Design. I am excited to share my love for the outdoors and adventure with you! I'm looking forward to the great memories to be made out in the trees!
Hi! My name is Camille and I am incredibly excited to be in Juneau working for AZA this summer. I visited Juneau 2 summers ago with my family and I finally found an excuse to move here. I am a Colorado native so I've grown up hiking the Rocky mountains and loving the outdoors. I adore working with children and am currently pursuing a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education at BYU-Idaho. I love listening to and making music, eating anything with avocado on or in it and walking everywhere barefoot (if I wasn't worried about stubbing a toe). I know this is going to be an unforgettable summer in Alaska and I can't wait to share it with you.
Hello everyone! My name is Zac and I'm super excited for my first season guiding in Alaska!

Hey travelers! I was born in Fairbanks and raised in Juneau, Alaska. I am currently studying English at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and am returning for a second seasoning of ziplining with Gin, Davy and hopefully all of you! From roasting shellfish on the beach, to camping in the alpine, I have so many great memories of this state. I know we are going to have a blast this summer zipping through the Rainforest!
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!
Hi I'm Patrick! And I'm back for another season of zipline fun! I've been with AZA helping guide here and there for the last 5 seasons, I just can't get enough zipping! I recently graduated from Western Washington University after studying Anthropology and I'm now working my winters schlepping luggage at the airport. In my free time I love writing music and playing guitar, I hope to be a star one day! I love Juneau and love sharing this place with everyone I meet on the zipline! See you in the trees!

I was born and raised here in Juneau Alaska and have spent most of my life exploring it's amazing wilderness.

Hey, I'm Joel! After an extensive road trip, traveling around the states, catching up with friends and going to some awesome concerts (Dylan concert was my favorite!), I'm back in Alaska for another summer of ziplining! I've lived in Juneau for about 10 years and love the outdoor lifestyle that the area has to offer. Music is a passion of mine and I like to play guitar when I'm not out hiking or exploring. It's hard to imagine a better way to experience a taste of Alaska than flying through a lush rainforest. I can't wait to share that experience with all of you!
