Trip Leader: Bold West 1
Originally from Austin, Texas, Kai’s love for adventures in new places began when his family moved to a little beach town in Mexico. Being immersed in a new culture completely changed the way Kai sees the world. Kai’s adventures continued when he moved to the Bay Area and explored San Francisco on his skateboard. Kai began working in conservation in high school, first working at the Oregon National Caves doing bat research. Kai currently lives in Bend, Oregon, where he earned an associates of applied science in Outdoor Leadership and is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Tourism, Recreation, and Adventure Leadership. Kai loves facilitating activities in rappelling and caving. He has worked as a Rainforest Naturalist Guide and English teacher in Costa Rica. Kai is certified in CPR and has been trained a wilderness first responder, and is excited to continue share his love for adventure with his students in his second season with Bold Earth.
