Jeff's first introduction to tech gear came in high school when he spent countless hours in the recording studio with his band and other musicians in his hometown. He received a B.A. in Philosophy from Middlebury College, serving on the Student Environmental Council, where he helped the College switch to 100% renewable energy by advocating for the use of small-scale hydropower, an on-campus biofuel plant, and locally-sourced biomethane. He is now a professional mountain guide and freelance writer, based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. When not outside, Jeff can be found writing stories, playing music, or cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
