We are an adventurous couple traveling through SE Asia! We love hiking, rock climbing, rafting, SCUBA diving, and anything else that takes us outside. We'd love to work on environmental or humanitarian projects, but we're also happy to help around the house and with daily chores. We are both physically fit and happy to do building projects, garden work, or other manual labor.
I finished a Masters programs in engineering in 2017 and have been traveling intermittently within the U.S. and abroad ever since. I have always enjoyed being outdoors, and this has guided my path while traveling. I worked at a ski resort, as a rafting guide, and recently have done some traveling in Northern Thailand with Rebecca. I always travels with my guitar and I love playing with any and all musicians we meet along the way.
I worked as a Manufacturing Engineer until Spring 2018, when I left to backpack the Wind River Mountains in Wyoming, USA and obtain an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) license. I've always been passionate about preserving the environment due to my love for the outdoors, and am excited to learn how different communities interact with the environment as we travel. I have been SCUBA diving since I was 13, and can't wait to explore some of the dive sites Asia is known for.
We met almost 8 years ago on the fencing team while studying at Michigan State University. When our adventures take us apart, we write each other letters every day - even if the letters have to be packed out of the mountains on a horse!

We both have backgrounds in engineering and are excellent problem solvers. We are both very comfortable with manual labor and basic construction, and particularly thrive with open ended problems . We've painted houses, built fences, developed gardens, fixed pump systems, and plenty more. We are comfortable working with and near pets. We are both native English speakers who are happy to teach others of all levels. Rebecca is also proficient in Spanish.
We are creative and hard workers who enjoy new tasks and challenges. If you have something specific in mind, let us know!
