About Me:
backpacker/musician/vegan chef/project manager/metallurgist/writer

Currently working as a trekking guide on active volcanoes in Guatemala. Looking to winter and save for the PCT in Spring 2018!
Where have you lived and worked?
Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, Guatemala
Dream Job:
Desolation Peak


26, Texas-bred, chef, musician, writer and backpacking instructor.

I’ve been vegetable-whispering for six years and playing music my entire life. 

More recently, my outdoors interests have taken the foreground as I’ve been busy in Antigua, Guatemala leading tours on active volcanoes with OX Expeditions. 
Before this, I spent four years managing an upscale, plant-based kitchen in Nashville, TN where I play music in a variety of projects and explore in the backcountry whenever I am able. I am comfortable with long, strenuous hours and physically demanding conditions.

I'm a firm advocate of the creative spirit and believe that our proximity to nature plays a great role in determining our happiness. 

In my community, I actively promote environmental stewardship, Leave-No-Trace principles, and the pursuit of equality and human rights. 

Looking for my next adventure as I prepare for a PCT thru-hike in 2018!
