Jim has been with Take A Hike since March 2012. He hails from New York but has found his home in the mountains of Western North Carolina. If you have any technical questions about gear, Jim is your man. He is our gear guru and would love to talk shop any day. When he isn’t out on the trails with is dog Piper, you can often find him relaxing in a hammock with a good book, cooking at home, home-brewing, and downhill skateboarding.
