Hey, I’m Garrett from the cornfields of Aurora, Nebraska. I just graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. After four years of college, I’m ready to get out of the classroom and stretch my legs. I’ve hiked in Canada, Costa Rica, Australia, New Zealand, and around the United States, but never the Pacific Northwest. Aside from meeting new people and gaining potential career skills and contacts, I’m excited to get to know the land and the local ﬂora, fauna, cuisine, and people. On the side, I like to fish, read, write, run, cook spicy food, play guitar, settle Catan, and occasionally groom myself a nice rugged mountain-man beard.
