a slice of the past

I graduated the Evergreen State College in Olympia Washington with a degree in Outdoor Leadership and Education. During my time in school I trained to become a wilderness first responder, took sustainable community design courses, and worked with the Wilderness Education Association of America. I earned my National Trail Guide Cert. – Specializing in group dynamics and guiding techniques. During this time I also completed several independent learning contracts including traveling as a photojournalist in Western and Central Europe, becoming a white water raft guide and whitewater rescue technician, and hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. This is one of my best achievements representing work towards a long term goal. After working as a freelance mountain and whitewater guide and earning my Oregon Stage Guide cert., I moved to Portland and started a guiding co-op called Intrepid Experience LLC, a place for outdoor educators to share resources.
Portland Bicycle was born from this project and has consumed my attention for the past three years. I needed a vehicle that would allow me to facilitate an equation that sums up my feelings about leading people. Safe Enjoyment + Education = inspiration and conservation.
