When she's not organizing events for OutdoorFest, Ethan works for the National Audubon Society and spends as much time as possible outside. A lifelong enthusiast, Ethan can be found rowing on the Hudson, birding in Fort Tryon Park, and mountain biking through Highbridge Park. He earned a B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is ecstatic about bringing the New York outdoor community to the same table. He also loves pancakes.
Jacob is an urban educator hailing from the beautiful state of Wisconsin. An avid adventurer and big kid who just wants to be outside, Jacob brings his positive energy and structure to our Mappy Hours. His limitless energy causes him to discover countless outdoor activities like slack lining, biking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, gardening, and discovering secret spots in New York City.
He holds a BS in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. When he is not with the Outdoorfest team, he is educating youth and promoting the outdoors to children.
Born and raised in Paris, Camille moved to New York City in 2012 to finish her MBA in Sports Management at the NYU Stern School of Business. With a father passionate about mountaineering, she spent most of her childhood and teenage years hiking, climbing and skiing at her family house in the Chamonix Valley. Camille discovered slacklining in France in 2010 and started highlining last year with friends from the New York climbing community. She also enjoys activities like paragliding, kayaking and horseback traveling.
Always looking for the right balance between urban and outdoor lifestyle, she lived in several cities renowned for their outdoor potential (Annecy, Strasbourg, Grenoble) and worked for brands like Columbia, Gore-Tex and Petzl.
