Bio: Daniel is Vermont native and outdoors enthusiast who is proud to bring his love for nature and group adventures to Guest Services at Sojourn. Following his studies as Saint Michael’s College, he worked for nearly 10 years on proposals and grants for USAID-funded international development projects. He has also been a spinning instructor, Spanish instructor, and leads community workshops on safe bike travel. Daniel thinks of biking as one language with many dialects. He enjoys riding his beater around town just as much as he enjoys long road rides through gorgeous terrain or XC MTB races. For the past few years, XC MTB races have brought him to Whiteface, NY and Leadville, CO for the Leadville 100 MTB race.
