Last October, Nate began working as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountains Center (WMC). He currently resides in Juneau, Alaska, but is eager to return to the Wrangells this spring. Nate originally came to McCarthy in 2015 to work as an intern at the WMC and to conduct research on the Root Glacier for his undergraduate senior thesis with Dr. Mike Loso. "It was an incredible and life-changing summer. I've continued to be drawn back to the wonderful WMC community," said Nate. He returned several times in 2016 to wrap up his field project and to participate in the local packrafting/running races. On Nate's days off, you can typically find him jogging up to the abandoned Bonanza Mine or packrafting down McCarthy Creek.
