Andrew, known by his nickname Topher, is a level III Senior Guide with a BA in Psychology and a vast knowledge of wilderness skills. Topher was drawn to wilderness therapy because of the healing he has experienced through his own time under the sun and stars. He is motivated by the desire to learn and grow from experiences living outdoors in small tribes.
In this role, he finds value in sharing a sense of awe around the simple things. Topher’s key strengths are recognizing and calmly resolving group conflict. His ability to create ceremony, groups, and games out of sticks, stones, and dirt remains unprecedented.
When not at work, Topher can be found building hot spring pools, playing guitar, hiking the desert, or carving stone.
