I'm Seth. I work with Maine Coast Heritage Trust to protect the Maine coast.

For almost 10 years, I helped Trailspace with a variety of tasks, from helping with the Review Corps program to sellingĀ advertising.

I've dedicated myself getting out more often, and helping others enjoy the outdoors. I'm honored to serve on the Boards of Directors of Canyon Country Discovery Center, The Amazing Earthfest, Grand-Staircase-Escalante Partners, and the Maine Chapter of International Appalachian Trail/Sentier International des Appalaches. I do consulting work for the Pacific Crest Trail Association and have consulted for Katadyn too.

I'm based on the east coast right now, and am very interested in car-free backpacking, combining bike touring with backpacking to reduce my carbon impact, and see more cool stuff.
