About Chris Walsh
Hi folks! I'm an ex-navy current tree-hugging outdoor experiential educator. The outdoors are my greatest passion, and I love sharing that with other people. I grew up surfing on the East Coast. W...hen the Navy moved me to Washington, snowboarding lead me to a real love of the wild mountains. When I left the military, I attended the National Outdoor Leadership School. My wife and I and our two dogs currently live in the Index, WA area, and spend 30% of our time in downtown Seattle.show moreOpen to other proposals
