I’m Firestarter. I have a real name, but trail names are just as important.
I grew up in rural Tennessee with a love of the outdoors and a reckless streak. I’ve traveled Latin America, lived in Colorado, thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, and thru-hiked the Camino Frances route of el Camino de Santiago. I’m a NOLS-certified Wilderness First Responder. I rock climb, backpack, trail run, ski, kayak, mountain bike, snowshoe, and am generally game for anything that gets me outside and moving.
I currently live in Nashville with my Siberian Husky mix, Sage.
