Festival Year: 2023

James Saunders

Roles: Director

James (he/him) was born in Texas but has spent the better part of his life traveling and refusing to call one place home for too long. Whether it’s camping, backpacking, kayaking, or forcing friends to sit with him on a patio regardless of the weather, his favorite place has always been outside. He thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2017 where, after only a few hundred miles, he decided to never work in a cubicle again. He’s now a certified Wilderness First Responder, NOLS Trip Leader trained, and worked with Colorado Outward Bound for the 2018-2019 seasons. He’s a proud cat person, shamelessly rollerblades everywhere, and is constantly trying to convince squirrels to be his friend
