Nick Savage


In case it wasn't clear from his accent, Nick grew up on an island off the coast of Maine, but he's since lived in Edinburgh, New York, Berlin and Greenland, where he worked on resupply expeditions for the National Science Foundation. He currently resides in London, where he spends the majority of his life finding excuses to escape the city in search of the world's best trekking, running, cycling, splitboarding, climbing, kayaking and sailing destinations, fuelled by a passion for the outdoors he'll share with anyone who asks.
