What do you remember about your LT experience?
The coolest part of LT was making a Quinsie hut with some friends, which is a makeshift igloo that I slept in for a night. Instead of setting up tents, we decided to build this mound of awesomeness.
What is the best BOC trip you've been on?
Last Fall Break, I went to the White Mountains. My favorite part of this was watching the sunrise above tree line. We woke up at 3:15 in the morning, and we hiked something like 18 miles across five peaks. That day, we started and finished hiking with headlamps on. I really enjoyed our first five peaks, but summiting Mount Washington at the end of the day was bittersweet.
What is your favorite type of trip to lead?
I like to lead casual hiking trips. I love the outdoors, and I also love the BOC because it's a great way to get to meet people who I wouldn't know otherwise. Relaxed trips allow me the chance to talk to these people.
What challenges have you had to overcome in your BOC leadership career?
Well, the first time I drove a canoe trailer, I had to back it out of a driveway, around a curve. That was hard.
What do you want your legacy in the BOC to be?
I want to be remembered for being energetic. I like fun. I am a big proponent of fun.
