Hello CleverHiker!

Thank you for visiting my video/bio page as part of my application for the Outdoor Gear Staff Writer position currently available at CleverHiker. Here you will also find links to some of my recent gear reviews, covering some of my favorite trail-tested hiking gear and apparel. I’m looking forward to meeting with you to discuss this opportunity in more detail.
