Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike 2017


In 2017, after working a decade in ad agencies, I quit my job and hiked along the 2650 mile long Pacific Crest Trail from the Mexican border to Manning Park in Canada. What started as a record snow year in Sierra, turned into a record wildfire season - the year of fire and ice.

I've documented my hike here and on my Instagram account.
