V.P. of Marketing
Here on the App Gear Co team, we practice what we preach: our employees love to work hard, but play harder...and love to rock our All-Paca Performance apparel while doing so. Because we love getting to know our customers, from hearing their stories to following along on their adventures, we wanted to give our customers a chance to get to know us: the exuberant, passionate, adventurous people who make the App Gear Co machine run. So...here’s a peek into the life of Lee, our Vice President of Marketing.
An environmentalist, biologist, and educator by trade, Lee loves educating his fellow adventurers on edible and medicinal plants. When he’s not blogging about environmental stewardship or leading his own herbal courses, you can find him ice climbing, backpacking, rock climbing, or mountaineering. We’re thrilled to have Natty the Adventurer on the team!
