Hello! My hiking adventures have taken me from arctic Norway to Southern Patagonia and many places in between. When I'm not traveling abroad, I work as a backpacking guide and program assistant covering the White Mountains along with portions of the AT. My eclectic mix of experiences from engineering to guiding volcano tours provides ample fuel for my writing career, which I complete as a freelancer and through my company BestDraft LLC. My greatest passion is introducing others to the wonders of outdoor adventure, either through my guiding or writing.
