Much to the chagrin of close friends, Scott Nordquist overtly waves his hometown flag and proudly represents the Pacific NW. As a kid he spent as much time as possible skiing the deep Cascade powder, riding his BMX around the local trails, and finding every possible way to enjoy Lake Washington. An admitted Spanish dork, he lived in both Granada, Spain and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Returning from the concrete jungle of Buenos Aires, he vowed to take advantage of plethora of outdoor awesomeness back in the States. He discovered SCA through the Alternative Spring Break program and then continued on to a fantastic summer as a conservation intern in Washington’s Alpine Lakes Wilderness. He recently escaped a rainy NW winter to volunteer as a trekking guide in Guatemala. Now, he’s leaving the rain again and excited to create a cohesive working community amidst the harshness of the desert!
