My family owned a campground outside of Chicago for the majority of my childhood, so I guess you can say I’ve been sharing my passion for everything in the Wilderness my entire life.  I have spent over 6 years traveling the USA as an “Adventure Guide” before I moved to Point Reyes Station, working a wide array of jobs in the Outdoor Industry: Kayaking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Canoeing, Rafting, Mountain Biking, Hiking, and Backpacking.
