Brianna Johnson

Brianna Johnson is our #TripLeadTuesday today but she might just be President of the United States one day. Her conversation skills are as strong as her yoga/interpretive dance/heron-mimicking skills as seen in this photo, not to mention that her answer to 3 items to bring to a deserted island is the CORRECT ANSWER.

Ben Banet

Ben Banet is our sweetest #TripLeadTuesday yet! Benana Banananet is our friendly neighbourhood baker who blesses Peaks with his supply of cinnamon rolls, banana bread, and National Geographic quality photography. He also happens to be #instafamous, so you better go like his IG posts because he can probably run you over in his souped up Subaru.

Zac Denham

Our zestiest new trip lead, Zac Denham, may or may not be able to count but we're excited to feature him in today's #TripLeadTuesday either way. Jury's still out on whether Zac is secretly a robot in disguise, but until AI takes down the human race we're happy to let him use his tech expertise on Peaks projects.

Tyler Jenss

It's our honour to feature our graphic design saviour, Tyler Jenss, in today's #TripLeadTuesday. We don't know what his favourite colour or preferred flavour of ice cream is, but we do know he has a great sense of humour and can mould miracles in Photoshop. Do us a favour and don't harbour any resentment towards him for telling everyone he's from NYC when he's really from NYACK, New York - we're sure it's a nice neighbourhood. Savour the moments he shows spider-like behaviour, exemplified in the picture above, because he's usually armoured by an amount of valour that leaves us in awe. We're NYACKING.

Rahul Bilakanti

Never before have we done a #TripLeadSpotlight where we're left with more questions than we started with. Rahul Bilakanti might be a tree masquerading as a trip lead, but he definitely has a way with words. Comment below if we should change the name of our organization to Hike Out Door.

Julienne Dawidoff

We're starting off the semester by serving LOOKS in today's #TripLeadTuesday, courtesy of Julienne Dawidoff. Her expertise lies in lipstick and fermented foods, but she also knows her way around the trails, the ocean, and a good bowl of ramen. If anyone knows how she can apply to be a kombucha model, DM her on Instagram.
