    Growing up in a suburb of New York City, most of my outdoor adventures were in the Northeast. Hiking, skiing, horseback riding, or just exploring the woods, when I was outside, I was in my element. Now, I am lucky to call Salt Lake City my home, where the world’s greatest outdoor playground is my backyard! Since living in Utah, my Big Agnes tent has become my second home, putting a "roof" over my head in torrential down pours, snow, and on clear moonless nights. I have walked thousands of miles in my Anu boots, through the desert dirt and slickrock, over snowy mountain passes, and through the Nepal monsoon season mud. I’ve carried my Gregory pack through the Wasatch, the Rockies, the Tetons, the Himalayas, and the Andes. Being outside and experiencing nature has given me so much enjoyment and taught me some valuable lessons throughout my life. And the great thing is, there are many ways to enjoy the outdoors! So whether you are planning a car camping trip for the first time ever, or you are a seasoned backpacker planning to bag another peak, I want to make sure you have the best experience possible so that you can feel a sense of fulfillment, accomplishment, appreciation for this beautiful Earth, and enjoy every minute of it!

    Kat is awesome!
    For years I've struggled on where to place call my camp kitchen supplies. "Don't put your sandwich on the ground!" my girlfriend would say. "Are you really going to eat that after its covered in mud??" Not anymore - thanks to Kat I can now eat without being judged by my peers on my new camp table. Now I can enjoy my camping and not feel like a gumby anymore.

    So far so good!
    I’ve had an excellent experience so far. Still finding a few more items currently, but for the ones that have been recommended so far, they will absolutely work for my needs and stay within my budget perfectly. I trust her recommendations as she seems quite knowledgeable from experience. Great job and I highly recommend Curated.com!

    Kat was amazing!
    I have very minimal experience with camping. I let her know where i was going and she let me know what price range everything was in. She stayed well within my budget and found great products so i could be comfortable. Coincidentally they all turned out to be in my fave color as well!

    Ace's experience with Kat
    Kat was great and informed. However, I am a longtime member of REI and their price with my 10% back on my yearly purchases make it hard be competitive on much of their gear. But...I always price check...and I will be back because of Kat.
