Our Story

Mission

We want to make the outdoors accessible to anyone, anywhere. Our mission is to inspire people to get outside, discover what they love, meet cool people and appreciate the world around them.

It's about more than just the outdoors, its about people connecting through their passions and experiencing the best of life together. We believe in party waves and meeting friends on powder days. We think the best places to sleep always have more than 5 stars. If it gets your heart racing, you should probably do it. Then do it again. We recognize the power of your passions means more than the size of your office. For us, adventure isn’t way out there. It’s right here.

Values

1. Go the Extra Mile - In business, friendships and on adventures, we believe putting in the extra effort always delivers the best results.

2. Take the Time - Life moves fast, it’s important to make sure we make time for the moments that matter. Breathing fresh air, hanging with friends, and enjoying the journey.

3. Keep it Real - It’s not about the latest gear or the perfect mountain top selfie. It’s about real moments with real people.

4. Inspire Community - It’s the experiences that bring us together, but the people that keep us connected.

Community

Adventure Aide is a concept that doesn’t work without the support of our community. We’ve created the platform, but it's the people who want to get out there and experience the outdoors that makes us not only a tech company, but a community of passionate people. Together, we can create a more active, exciting, and adventurous way of living life.

One thing you never go on an adventure without?
I can't go anywhere without my Pitviper military-grade sunglasses. Oh, and a cooler full of Coors Light.
#1 on your "Bucket List"
Visit all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums
What's your favorite place in the world you've traveled?
I did a solo backpacking trip to Thailand. There are some amazing rural areas outside of the cities and beaches. For bamboo river rafting, elephant sanctuaries, morning temple runs and zip lining through the jungle, Chiang Mai is the place to be. For some incredible hikes and hippie vibes, there is a mountain town called Pai which is a challenge to get to but it's filled with adventure and delight. Motor bikers, where a helmet.

If someone ever encounters your evil clone, give us a fun fact so we know which you is you.
Make us go back and forth telling jokes. The first one to run out is clearly not me.
Do you have any good jokes?
When does a joke become a dad joke? When the punchline becomes apparent!
