Jamie grew up in Upstate New York exploring the creeks, lakes and forests of the area. It was in those settings that he befriended the sense of awe, wonder and amazement both within himself and the natural world. In college, he studied business and got to travel to many parts of the world and expand his worldview.
As a young adult, he began to stand up for justice in the world. In doing so, he was confronted with the realization that access to nature and a healthy relationship to land are integral to what he feels it means to be a fully expressed human. For that reason, he is grateful to do this work and share that experience with the young people who attend Primitive Pursuits.
In his free time, Jamie enjoys being with family and friends, practicing wilderness skills, gardening, beekeeping, and contributing to the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
