Dan Purdy - Founder 

With a degree in aerospace engineering, five years of near-constant world traveling and freelance writing, and three years of adventure guiding, I have a fully stocked toolkit of experiences and expertise to bring to your project. 

From in-depth narratives describing my experiences in the outdoors, to magazine features, to gear-focused content, my writing is both versatile and engaging. I'm always ready to discuss new projects, and I'd love to connect with you!
