After 17 years of section hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail, Ratatouille made his first thru-hike
attempt in 2015. Producing a podcast from the PCT-- Trailside Radio-- gave him a passion for
sharing stories from the hiking community. This passion inspired him to edit the 2015 PCT
Class Video, which he considers a love letter to the entire PCT community.
