James (aka Booby)

Hailing from Chicago, James (affectionately referred to as Booby) fell in love with hiking the moment he moved to the Pacific Northwest many years ago. Having lived in DC and LA prior to his move to the PNW, he was in awe with all Washington state had to offer. He found himself hiking and connecting with nature every chance he got with whoever was willing to join him. This deep passion grew into Miles Hike Club as he wanted to see people from all backgrounds and abilities overcome their wildest dreams.

From Seattle with roots in East Africa, Ish is your resident local. Hiking in the PNW for nearly 20 years and with a penchant for learning and sharing fun facts about the region, Ish has a variety of interests ranging from the local arts scene to the burgeoning tech scene.
