Jeremiah Young


Identical twin, brother of three and son to Ethel, a single working mother who taught him that true wealth is the sum of life's experiences. Jeremiah, who hadn't discovered traveling was something people did for enjoyment until his late 20's, grew up moving from home to home as his mother followed work and life's often unfavorable circumstances. After joining the Army to serve his country following the attacks of September 11th, Jeremiah was assigned to the Army's most deployed unit and the place that would assert his love for adventure and extreme climates - the famed 10th Mountain Division. After five years and multiple deployments, it was time to return home to begin the next chapter in his life. 

Since then, Jeremiah has traveled to over 25 countries and throughout most of the United States. A respected photographer, adventure traveler, and fun-loving nerd for nature. Jeremiah has been published in NatGeo Traveler and multiple online articles and publications. He's been featured in adventure travel blogs, advertising campaigns, and social media outlets for his knowledge and passion for the outdoors. His ability to utilize an outgoing and comedic personality, personal experience, and photography to connect people with nature has earned him a high level of respect in the outdoor community. Jeremiah can often be found with his two Australian Shepherds and travel companions Honey and Reagan.
