From Colombia to South Africa, backpacks to rafts, Mike is our go-to expert in the nitty gritty details of the adventures you’ll be undertaking.
Mike started his outdoor lifestyle as the one being carried inside of a backpack, but quickly graduated to carrying his own, and hasn’t stopped since. He is passionate about helping others to experience the beauty and wonder of the natural world, and after many years working as an outdoor trip leader, it was this same passion that drove him to Untamed Path. Coupled with a newfound but growing interest in South America after living in Ecuador, he is excited to be a partner in creating remarkable memories that you will always cherish.
Co-Owner and Travel Advisor
Jared has one of the most diverse and interesting travel resumes around! A sucker for adventure, he is always looking for his next challenge, in whatever form it comes.
Before joining Untamed Path, he spent 13 years leading counter-terrorism investigations around the world as an FBI agent. Jared now leverages his past experiences to better serve our clients in a rapidly changing world, providing insights into security and risk management.
Jared has traveled extensively on his own, as well as with Jeff throughout their fifteen years of friendship. They led a team of volunteers to Ecuador to build a school in 2006, and since then they haven’t stopped planning trips for themselves and their friends. Though Jared has been all around the world, South America keeps drawing him back. His love for Latin American culture started in Costa Rica in 2000, but since then he’s found his home away from home exploring the Andes mountains of South America.
