Who is Kurt?
Kurt’s first guiding experience was shepherding 7 teenagers across the U.S. in the summer of 2007. “It was a huge learning experience for me – and it helped me land a guiding job when I went back to university afterward.” He spent the next 3 years leading backpacking, day-hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, sea kayaking, and rafting trips while double-majoring in Environmental Studies and Geography.
After graduation, he explored a bit before landing in Seattle, where he eventually found himself working shoulder-deep in the corporate world at Expedia as a Senior Geographer. But it wasn’t quite right, he says. “I’m a nerd for maps, so I can’t say I didn’t have fun. But the guiding life tugged at my heart so hard that I didn’t have a choice but to join Bicycle Adventures, working alongside my best friend James and wife Renee. Helping facilitate an unforgettable experience with the people I love in some of the most beautiful places far outweighs the world I recently left behind!”
