I was born and raised in Florida, graduated from FSU in 2016, and moved upstate in 2016. Since then I have rekindled a love for hiking by getting to know the Catskills region. I later quit my corporate day job after launching an adventure-themed instagram this tour, and have helped many others escape the city, immerse in nature, and capture incredible photos in the Catskills. I am a New York State Licensed Hiking Guide (Badge #8246) and have guided everyone from first time hikers to Himalayan summiters through an incredible experience. I am also an semi-pro with an iPhone, my drone, and handheld video camera, and will capture amazing shots and video for you throughout the experience

Where you'll be
We will be spending time in the Catskill State Park in New York, which is a historic and wonderful place that many forget about when thinking of New York. A scenic drive will take us to an iconic and beautiful hiking or waterfall spot, where I will show you the most "instagrammable" locations to get that perfect and memorable shot and video!
