Welcome New Trip Leader - MATT

Hi there!  
You can call me Matt  ^_^
You’re probably wondering where I’m from: mainly Virginia, Taiwan, and Boston!
So, why did I decide to lead for Teen Treks?  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Maybe it’s because I suffer from chronic wanderlust and Fernweh, which has led me to travel across the world.  Maybe I was inspired by the legendary journeys of Laura Dekker and Tom Allen (Maidentrip, Janapar), or by Santiago’s quest for his personal legend (The Alchemist).  Perhaps the choice is a return to my roots working as a camp counselor, ropes course leader, and teacher.  One thing is certain – I’m pumped to be joining some awesome trekkers for one amazing adventure!
