A little more about me

Having obtained degrees in science, business, counseling, and religion, I choose to play in nature. 

From varied jobs including McDonald’s to EMS, owning small businesses, lower level to executive management, marketing, and others. I find my peace working in the wild. While this has slowed down a bit since breaking my back in 2015, I am slowly getting back out into part of what fuels my passion. This website is dedicated to that effort. 

I desire to get people from all walks of life to take a stronger interest in nature and the benefits that lie within her. We’ve become very busy juggling our daily lives. Our cups are overrun with stress and often even depression. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Studies show that hiking makes you happier. Get outside and experience what nature has to offer.
