Born and raised in the city of Chicago, Quincy grew up spending his summers in northern Wisconsin where he fostered a love of the outdoors through backpacking and backcountry canoeing trips. This passion grew along with Quincy as he transitioned to leading wilderness trips for Adventure Treks, a summer program similar to ARCC, including mountain biking, sea kayaking, mountaineering, and rock climbing. In addition to outdoor exploration, Quincy is an avid traveler who has traveled to over 35 countries across all seven continents. When not leading at ARCC, Quincy can be found baking bread in the kitchen or enjoying the latest Jon Krakauer book.
