Alex Burgen-Tower

Alex "BT" Burgun-Tower is a lifelong admirer of the outdoors. Growing up in Massachusetts, he spent much of his time hiking and camping in the White Mountains of New England. Though he has lived his dream of hiking in the Himalayas, his favorite trails are still on Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire. His passions are sharing knowledge, discoveries, and outdoor adventures with kids and adults who don't take themselves too seriously. He has been a youth soccer camp director, a middle school teaching assistant, and a general education teacher in Kathmandu, Nepal. Alex also enjoys climbing trees, trading riddles, and going on long runs.
