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.   In my spare time you can find me taking photographs, brewing, continuing my travels in my big green van with my little adventure dog Gila, and of course doing anything that involves water.
