Growing up in North Carolina and spending most of my time in the Appalachian Mountains I've always had a curiosity towards the natural world and what can be gained from meaningful experiences in nature. Having studied Environmental Studies with a minor in Outdoor Education at Montreal College gave me opportunities to pursue my passion for facilitating experiential learning in a wilderness setting.
One of my favorite places in the world is Australia where I lived and worked leading school groups on expeditions teaching bush crafts, backcountry living skills, canoe journies, climbing, orienteering, environmental stewardship and natural history. I also love hiking, so much so that I've completed the Appalachian Trail, and the Pacific Crest Trail with hopes to keep these large scale adventures going. Some of my favorite activities around camp are cooking tasty meals, perfecting a tarp set up, and using a bow-drill to make campfires.?
