“The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.”
— Alan Watts


Making a choice

When life loses its meaning, something has to change. That was my experience while living in Montana in 2014 - my life lost meaning. I had a great job in a beautiful location, friends, a good salary… so why did I feel so lost in a never-ending cycle monotony? Why was I so dissatisfied? I didn’t have the first idea, so I made a radical decision.

I made the decision to walk.

An International Network of Trails

With representation from over 150 countries, World Trails Network (WTN) strives to connect diverse trails and trail leaders of the world with the intention to protect, promote, and preserve trails of all shapes, sizes, and identities.

Why? Because trails matter.

In 2019, I became the International Field School Director for the WTN regional affiliate, World Trails Network: Hub for the Americas. Since then, I have been working with this non-profit and our community partners to help develop the trekking market in Costa Rica.
