In the summer of 2013, I had the good fortune to be a member of the National Outdoor Leadership School’s Mega Semester in Alaska course. Those 75 days drastically changed my life as I knew it. No longer was I wandering aimlessly but I found a way to live my values and a life that I couldn’t imagine. I graduated college in May 2014 and set off to complete the Brooks Range Odyssey. I came nowhere near to achieving my plan, enduring many disheartening lessons instead. In May of the following year, I departed for the Brooks Range once more. Since then, I have made my home in Arctic Alaska, within the expansive and incredibly wild mountains of the far north in pursuit of a fulfilling, adventurous and holistic life.
