In 2013, I quit my corporate job to pusue a  dream and a passion I had, to take others, to very special places in the Smoky Mountains, that I had enjoyed so much. and had benefited so greatly emotionally, and spiritually. Now, over 400 safe hikes later, I've expanded my guide service from short day hikes, to overnight camping, kayaking, and custom adventures.  Today, I continue to pursue my outdoor guide service passion, as i have never had a greater joy, than introducing my guests to the wonders of the great outdoors!
