Maxie grew up in LaGrange, Georgia, just a few miles from Pine Mountain – famous as the beloved vacation destination of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Although he embraced the outdoors as a child, it was not until after college when he spent almost five months on the Appalachian Trail that his true love for the outdoors blossomed. Since that time, Maxie has been lucky enough to have amazing opportunities around the globe including an unsupported trek to Everest Base Camp, summiting over half of the 50 state highpoints and hiking from Mexico to the Sierra Nevadas. And then somewhere along the way, the passion for outdoor adventure turned into a career…

Since venturing into the travel industry half a decade ago, Maxie has had the opportunity to teach and guide in some of the most beautiful and cherished locales on the planet. Despite the numerous places he has been blessed to visit, the “must see” list somehow always grows longer. When Maxie is not out guiding, he trades his backpack for a briefcase and “practices” law. Oftentimes, this consists of staring out the window, tugging at his tie and wishing he could be back out there… wherever that may be.

Maxie loves sharing his passion for the outdoors with others and is grateful to be able to take clients off the beaten path, create experiences that are entirely unique for each of them, and play a part in forging trips of a lifetime!
