Senior Field Instructor
Surrounded by the lakes, mountains, and rivers of the Adirondacks, Wyatt fell in love for the outdoors at a young age. He comes from a family of hikers, paddlers, and artists where adventure was a key part of everyday life. Wyatt knew he wanted to pursue a career where he could share his outdoor experiences with others. In 2014, Wyatt graduated from Warren Wilson College with a degree in Outdoor Leadership. He then moved to the Pacific Northwest where he worked for multiple outdoor experiential education organizations.
Wyatt started at Evoke in February of 2019. When in the field, Wyatt builds rapport through shared experience of the clients that he works with. This can look like bombering a shelter during a storm with the rest of the group, or talking about video games, anime, and Star Wars. Through those shared connections, Wyatt mentors and facilitates healthy and assertive communication styles. This lays the foundation for the work that is done in the backcountry.
When not in the field Wyatt is out searching the Oregon Cascades for waterfalls with no name or place in recorded history. Wyatt has discovered over 80 waterfalls in the last 5 years. He uses a combination of old Google Earth data, old Topo’s, and LIDAR to find natural wonders that have eluded modern day mapping and navigation.
