Marshall Andersen

Marshall Andersen was born and raised in Southeast Idaho. From an early age Marshall’s desire for the outdoors was easy to see. Fly fishing, hunting, backpacking, climbing, snowboarding,and exploring his beautiful surroundings are just some of the activities that fuels Marshall’s love for the wild. He likes to share that passion with those around him through good food and teaching them about the wonders of the mountains. Marshall joined the team in 2017. He has been working as a guide and right hand man to Beau ever since. When Marshall isn’t guiding hunting or pack trips he can be found waist deep in a river or stream fly rod in one hand and an ice cold Mountain Dew in the other.

Laura Cuccio

Laura grew up in Connecticut, spending the majority of her time racing sailboats, playing street hockey, and climbing trees. Her love for the outdoors has been with her forever, but this passion really began to take root when she moved to northern Utah to pursue a graduate degree in Geology. Once out west, Laura fell deeply in love with the wild landscapes of the Greater Yellowstone Area and southern Utah, spending most of her time climbing, backpacking, mountain biking, and backcountry snowboarding. She now resides in Teton Valley, ID with her partner and two doggies. Laura is super grateful for the opportunity to work with llamas in these beautiful areas, and loves to share her passion and knowledge for these areas with guests!

James Barrett

James grew up in the Central Coast of California, playing outside and wandering through the woods. Over time, weekend camping trips gave way to backpacking trips as his passion for the outdoors grew. In the years since then he has worked in corporate team building, climbing and rappelling instruction, obtained a degree in Outdoor Education, and has guided river and backpacking trips throughout the Southwest. Eventually the allure of the mountains called James out of the southwest and into the world of llama packing. After one trip he knew that every summer season required llamas to be complete. When James is off clock he spends his time on two wheels chasing ribbons of single track around the west.

Andrew Christoforo

Andrew grew up on the East Coast in Massachusetts. His love for the outdoors started early on, going on hikes with his family as soon as he could walk. In middle and high school he was a member of the biodiversity club, where he went on hikes in the local area to learn about the flora and fauna each weekend. After graduating, Andrew started to hike and backpack solo in various areas around New England. In June of 2018, he packed up all of his outdoor gear in a car and headed for the western United States on what turned out to be a 6 month long road trip. Hiking, backpacking and climbing in our nations National Parks and wilderness areas along the way and having so much fun out west, he decided this was the side of the country for him. In March of 2019, Andrew joined the team in Utah as a guide and after experiencing how amazing packing llamas are, found that llamas needed to be a part of his life. He is very blessed and passionate about the opportunity he has been given to share his knowledge of the outdoors and of llamas with guests!
