Mike Fausone

As the only trek leader without claims to non-US citizenship, Mike can be relied upon to provide the authoritative “American Perspective” in its most loquacious form. Mike is an avid athlete and loves rock-climbing, mountain-biking, skiing, triathlons, backpacking… basically all things physically demanding and slightly dangerous. Born and raised in Chicago, he has also traveled extensively in South American – so if you’re the kind of person who prefers secondary sources, feel free to ask him aobut life in Michigan and Latin America.
