Trip Leader: Hawaii Adventure 1 & Hawaii Adventure 2
Alex grew up most of his life in Connecticut, but spent time living and traveling around Europe when he was younger. He moved out to the Pacific Northwest to attend the University of Oregon and immerse himself in the outdoors. Upon graduating with his bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies, he moved a few hours east to Bend to find work and fun in the mountains. In his free time, you can find him exploring around local and distant peaks, skiing, climbing, or hauling an extra large pack. Most recently, Alex has spent the last 7 months traveling all across Asia, trekking across the Himalayas, climbing on sea cliffs in Thailand, attending Indian weddings, and eating more new foods than he can count. Alex has been trained as a wilderness first responder and is so excited to bring all his new experiences to his work with Bold Earth this summer for his second season as a Bold Earth trip leader.
