Hiya, I’m Trace.

I’m an avid backpacker, explorer and lover of life. I’m also an entrepreneur specializing in technology, web design and lead generation. In another life I was a California Real Estate Broker and an Equities Trader holding the Series 7, 63, 55 and 24 Securities Licenses.

My goal at Alpine Science is to have fun and be a definitive online resource for outdoors enthusiasts while emphasizing the importance of Ultralight and Leave No Trace principles and methodologies. Wilderness preservation motherfuckers!

I am fond of road trips, the Grateful Dead, MMA, Colorado, Hawaii, backpacking, BASS MUSIC, wine tasting, picnics, riding bikes on the boardwalk, ukuleles, vintage Schwinns, hammocks, vintage tube amps and guitars and all things relating to classic Americana. I have an extra Uke, want to jam? Cheers!
