Late in 2014, after years of struggling with my own mental health issues,I was seriously contemplating suicide.Through a series of serendipitous occurrences, I found myself on the Appalachian Trail despite the fact that I’d never pitched a tent before. It was the walk that saved my life - a 2,200 mile walk.
Hiking uplifted my spirit and convinced me that life was worth living. I was finally able to calm the voices in my head that I’d spent a lifetime battling and actually engage with them from a thoughtful and grounded place.
5 years and roughly 7,500 miles of trails later, I embrace life fully and feel deeply aligned to my purpose. I feel I owe it to myself to share my experiences through writings, photographs and more to help inspire as many as possible. By doing so, I hope to encourage you to step outside and see all that this great beautiful world has to provide. So come along and hike the good hike.
