As a participant, Garrett was overwhelmed with awe when he spent the summer in Ecuador and the Galapagos. The transition from his home state of North Carolina to the rolling Andes, vibrant rainforest, and biodiverseGalapagos gave him a greater sense of connection with the natural world. Many summers later, Garrett’s worldview is ever-evolving as his love for the outdoors and adventure has taken him from farming in Norway to hiking in South Africa to exploring in Svalbard. Garrett has lead Nordic Elements, El Sendero, and Pura Vida. Now, he works in Logistics for the Road Less Traveled and enjoys balancing the many moving parts of RLT trips. In his spare time, Garrett loves to cook, ride his bike, talk about plants, read, and listen to a good podcast. He graduated with honors with a dual degree in Philosophy and Environmental Studies. He can normally be found baking bread or searching for the best espresso in Chicago.
