πŸ“ Sedona, Arizona

πŸ“ Cannon Beach, Oregon

Matt Altman
CEO & Co-Founder

"My favorite place to roam is the Oregon coast at Cannon Beach. Being from the desert I love the contrast of this coastline of trees, rock formations and ocean. One of our favorite things is to forage for mussels. The weather is amazing and yes, love when it rains." 

πŸ“ Hawaii

Jason Franklin 
Co-Founder

"One of our favorite places to roam is Hawaii. Our family loves the beach and it’s definitely our happy place."

πŸ“ Belmar, New Jersey

Natalie Ciampi
Graphic Designer

"Growing up 30 minutes from the Jersey shore, made me an avid beach-goer and beach-lover. Now living in the Arizona desert, I love to Roam to the pool or any of the California beaches - love San Diego & Coronado, but Belmar, NJ will always have my heart."

πŸ“ Anderson Island, Washington

Briana Ortega
Social Media Strategist

"My favorite place to roam is the PNW. I love that the forest meets the sea in such a magical way."

πŸ“ Sedona, Arizona

Sales Coordinator

"My favorite place to Roam is Sedona! Living in the valley it's great since it's only a couple of hours away! Whenever we can get away this place is at the top of our list! Hiking is our favorite thing to do there. We love it because it has both desert hiking spots and forest spots with more shade."

πŸ“ Glendale, Arizona (Thunderbird Park)

Alex Tetmyer

"Thunderbird Park is one of my favorite places to roam because it is a hike my parents and I have been doing ever since I was a little kid and once you reach the top, you are rewarded with a spectacular view of the West Valley of Phoenix."
