Originally from Tampa, Florida, at 20 years old Austin left the flatlands to explore America’s mountains and never looked back. Since then he’s spent his time living and working all over the country to facilitate hiking experiences through gorgeous landscapes. His adventures include thru hikes of the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Long Trail, and Hayduke Trail, as well as plenty of peak bagging and cragging. He also spent multiple seasons working as a Backcountry Caretaker in Vermont’s Green Mountains, doing trail work while offering encouragement and education about Leave No Trace practices to visitors in the backcountry. 

Along with plenty of time spent walking in the woods, he’s known to enjoy rock climbing, skiing, cooking, and photography. Whatever he’s doing outside, Austin uses his passion for the outdoors to bring joy and adventure to both beginners and experts alike, focusing on thoughtful and responsible recreation in our natural spaces.
