About Me

I started making maps for family and friends to celebrate our major trips. I couldn’t find any existing maps that focused on the places we loved and the trails we had hiked together, that combined the precision of modern hillshading with the warmth of vintage labeling—so I made my own.

I put my Mt. Rainier mountaineer’s map online as an experiment in February of 2023 and was blown away by how many people wanted a copy. Since then, I’ve been able to help all sorts of people (across 34 states!) connect to places and trips they love.

I love helping people celebrate their outdoor adventures, feel closer to nature, and shrink the gap between our daily lives and our mountaintop experiences. With one of my maps, I hope you can bring the wilderness home.
