What clients can we find you working with at Darby?
I'm excited to work with so many cool clients! I'll be working with AquaTech, Astral, Diamond Brand Gear, Feetures, Hyland's, Johnson Outdoors, and Tailwind Nutrition.
Beverage of choice?
Coffee at work, beer otherwise.
Favorite part of the job?
Awesome clients, great coworkers, office dogs--what's not to love?
Where can we find you while not in the office?
Wading in a stream somewhere, running out in Bent Creek, on the climbing wall at SMAC, or (most likely) at a brewery in West Asheville.
Favorite piece of gear?
My Feetures socks have been a game-changer on trail runs!
Must follow on Instagram?
@overthefirecooking. Because when I'm not eating food, I want to be looking at pictures of food.
Podcast or music while on the road?
Music for under two hours, podcast if it's longer than that. Dirtbag Diaries is a go-to.
Favorite spot in WNC?
That's a tough one. I love going just about anywhere on the Blue Ridge Parkway or down in Pisgah National Forest, but if I'm really trying to get away then I head to the Nantahala National Forest.
Burrito or taco?
Burrito, hands down. You can fit more stuff in it!
What’s your next splurge purchase?
Definitely trying to get a road bike so I can enjoy some scenic rides on the Parkway!
What are you jamming to on the headphones while in the office?
Chances are pretty good I'm either listening to the Avett Brothers or Lord Huron.
Who on the Darby team would you trust to survive in the woods?
I would trust any of them, but I'm going to go with Ashleigh, because if you can thru-hike the AT, you can survive just about anything!
