I was born an explorer, my earliest memories involve searching out unique adventures. Community building and guiding groups for me started while living in British Columbia. Inbound and out of bound areas of Whistler Blackcomb would find us zipping through canyons blanketed with white powdery snow. Born on the beaches and swamps of Florida I still have a bit of salt and sand in my eyes. I moved to Oakland in 1991. This area is constantly changing. Adventures can be found everywhere. I like to find the less traveled areas and enjoy them while they are still underutilized any easily accessible. Let's get away from the crowds and see the Bay area from a locals eye.
