  • Description

    Reed and I are a couple in our late 20s, both born and raised a subsistence lifestyle in rural Alaska. We are successful commercial salmon fisherman and looking to expand our skill sets as well rounded people. Reed was a successful athlete in college and continues to coach and work with the youth in his community. He runs his own fishing boat in Alaska and also built his own house with the help of his father last winter. I spent my younger years backpacking, volunteering, and working around the world before I completed my college education in 2020. We are both eager to stay with a host where we can not only be of use, but also learn about the culture and way of life. We don't have kids of our own yet, but we enjoy being around kids!
