Contact me to support our adventure and help build our outdoor communities.
I have been delving into wild places, helping build outdoor communities, providing product feedback and promoting brands as a trekker, climber and mountaineer since 2014. In February 2018 I completed an eight month project traveling North America pursuing ambitious objectives while living simply out of a car and exploring unique cultures and landscapes in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.
Most recently I have worked as a brand ambassador with Yakima’s Tent Department and HeyHeys Adventure Leggings and partnered to provide in-field product feedback to Arc’terxy, HeyHeys, Yakima and REI. I am looking to partner with other adventure-oriented, conservation-minded brands that can help support my community efforts and enable future adventures. In return, I want to help promote those brands and share the stories those brands enable.
Backcountry Nomad just published its second app: Where to Climb (App Store). ‘Where to Climb’ answers that common question ‘where can I go climbing this weekend?’.
It’s happened to us all where a weekend plan is foiled by weather or our favorite area opens up for a perfect weather weekend in shoulder season… That is, if we were paying attention close enough to notice. Instead of checking weather reports for each of these areas, just use your current location to find what areas around you are in prime time as well as the rock climbing routes there.
The culture of outdoor recreation has been evolving, but the software tools that exist for it have remained stagnate. I’ve seen about a dozen experience-sharing or trail-finding apps rise and fall while the majority my own research still relies on distributed blogs, word of mouth and in person training. That is why I created Pack List, the iOS App to puts years of knowledge and hundreds of miles of backcountry experience in your hand.
