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. 

IShmail (AKA ISH)

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. After moving back to Seattle after a few years in the Deep South, his commitment to preserving and acknowledging the history of the region is evident in his approach with Miles Hike Club.

Michael (Aka Mike)

Born and raised in the PNW, Mike's passion for nature and the outdoors began at an early age growing up on five acres in Olympia, WA. Always outdoors and ready to explore, his passion for nature has come as both a hobby and career from his past experiences with the Department of Natural Resources and Department of Ecology. Always looking for ways to stay involved with nature, Miles Hike Club has reignited both excitement and the love of helping those explore the great outdoors to the fullest. 


Being a local Washingtonian, Chang has always loved to explore and be in touch with nature. With his active lifestyle and background as a collegiate athlete, hiking was a great way for him to explore the beautiful landscapes of the PNW and stay in shape. After living for more than 3 years in Seattle, Chang has explored most of the hikes the Seattle area has to offer and he would love to share these beauties with everyone!
