Meet Jake

Three passions have come together to shape my path in life: people, the outdoors, and the great state of Maine.

At just 17 years old, I was overweight and out of energy. With the encouragement of friends and mentors, I chose an active lifestyle and never looked back.

While running, biking, and kayaking throughout Maine, I lost a lot of weight and gained even more perspective.

My journey has inspired me to bring those experiences to you. Tourists and native Mainers alike can now connect and share, creating new adventures throughout my home state.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.
