Gear Reviews and Product Testing
I’m an enormous enthusiast of self-powered outdoor activities, especially off-pavement cycling, hiking/backpacking, trail/mountain running, mountaineering, and climbing. One of my main goals is sharing this enthusiasm and helping people with their own adventures. Sometimes that means finding gear that works or even helping make that gear work.
I work professionally as a backpacking guide in the United States in partnership with Andew Skurka Adventures LLC, I’m an ambassador for many outdoor companies, and I already provide private product testing for a variety of companies.
I’m also terribly harsh on my gear.
Please contact me if you have an intriguing piece of gear you would like me to review to share my own site or for content on a third party site. I have been writing online in one form or another since the late 90’s, and hold a creative BFA degree from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. Read some of my latest product reviews and recommendations.
Product testing services can run the gamut from just me receiving gear to use in my adventures and letting you know how much I like it, to providing private, comprehensive feedback through the product’s development life cycle.
As well as my artistic higher education, I have also have worked as a software designer and in quality assurance positions for myself as well as local startups for the past 20+ years.
