What the
outdoor industry
has to say about #TheAAC 


Jon Dorn, VP/GM
Outdoor Group at Outside Inc.

Steven knows his stuff when it comes to wilderness adventure and safe travel in the backcountry. But what makes being around him truly special is his warmth, generosity, and amazing spirit of sustainable living. When you hike with The AAC, you will learn, laugh, and leave the trail cleaner than you found it.


Kristin Hostetter
Head of Sustainability & Community Partnerships at Outside Inc.


Steven is exactly the kind of guy you'd want to hit the trail with, he's a natural connector of people and brings out the best in those around him. I've been personally inspired

by his passion for sustainability and the #trashtag movement he created. One of my favorite hiking days in Nepal with him was our long slow walk out of the Nar Phu Valley, filling a massive garbage bag with litter and talking about our hopes and dreams for the planet.


Earl B. Hunter, Jr
Founder and President
Black Folks Camp Too

The AAC is a huge part of BFCT's DNA. Steven's photography and guiding skills are second to none. His work has allowed us to collect a ton of data, heal hearts and stragegically improve communication around the campfire, which is important as we we continue to change the world. If I had one word to describe Steven's work, attention to details and overall commitment to excellence that word would be "Dope!" 


Jenna Celmer
Co-Founder and Chief Community Officer at Basecamp Outdoors 

Every Interaction with Steven leaves you feeling more capable, resilient, and full of hope than before. He seamlessly blends technical savvy with empathy, and makes people feel seen - the precise type of person you want to spend time around a campfire with.
