Founder & CEO
I welcome you to 4XPEDITION. If you are seeking a resource for insightful, field-tested gear reviews, tips and tricks for improving your outdoor experiences, and inspiring, motivating outdoor adventure content to encourage you to get motivated, get moving and get outside, you have come to the right place.
I have ventured into wilderness on a wide range of adventures for more than 30 years. My excursions have taken me to distant lands throughout the Americas and Europe. Travels have included extensive car camping and backcountry overland travel, backpacking, trekking, hiking, and climbing, as well as canoe and stand-up paddleboard expeditions.
My vast experience in the outdoors has afforded me insight into what works well and what can easily become a complete fail. I am also a published author of inspirational books on the benefits of nature experiences.
I am an internationally awarded designer having developed brands, products, packaging, and digital presence from the ground up for companies recognized by millions of people around the world.
I am passionate about building 4XPEDITION into an internationally recognized outdoor brand. I strive to offer products and services to both consumers and companies designed to elicit rich and memorable experiences in nature. I believe that such experiences bring us closer to our planet and in turn spawn an appreciation for the miracle that it is and a pursuit toward a respectful, sustainable human existence.
So come along for the fun and excitement of adventure travel and wilderness expedition!
