Noah was raised in the mountains of central Vermont but quickly fell in love with Utah after a two month road trip with friends. After living in a variety of places, from California and Oregon to Colorado and Utah, Noah studied outdoor recreation leadership in Leadville, Colorado for two years. This is where he discovered his interest in helping others to experience wilderness in safe and meaningful ways. In 2006, after working at a seasonal wilderness program for 3 years, Noah found year round work at Second Nature as a field instructor. After becoming a mentor level instructor in 2009 Noah spent another 2 years in the field before deciding to return to school.

Noah studied biology and secondary education at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. While going to school he worked seasonally at Second Nature but returned to the field permanently in February of 2015. Since that time he has transitioned into a field director position, using his passion for wilderness therapy and staff development in a new and exciting capacity. During his free time Noah likes to climb, explore, garden, travel to new places and spend time with his wife and two children.
