A Life in Short

 My journey as an adventurer started after graduating from university. I first backpacked across Central America and thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail. That year solidified the decision to live a nomadic lifestyle and have many more adventures.

I then went on to hike the Pacific Crest Trail and the Continental Divide Trail, completing North America’s Triple Crown of Hiking. In between extensive international travel and long-distance hikes over the years, I held positions as a biochemist to support my adventures.

After the Triple Crown of Hiking, I relocated to the Caribbean to become certified as a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer. That meant spending more than 500 hours breathing underwater <“)))>< one year!


Following my time as a fish, I decided to up my adventure game. I set the goal to create a hiking route across the longest continuous mountain range on the planet, the Andes of South America. Over course of that adventure, I destroyed 7 pairs of footwear, averaging 10-12 hiking hours per day.

I also successfully summitted the highest mountains in the western hemisphere…

After three years of hiking and mountaineering, I transitioned to a career in digital marketing to continue adventuring around the world while working remotely. I also began to share the journey through memoirs & audiobooks as well as share the technical knowledge I’ve gained from decades of outdoor adventures!
