Kurt has been hanging out in tropical rainforests since he was eight and lived in Costa Rica. His first trip to Madre de Dios was in 1988 when he was twenty. Kurt immediately knew he was in a special place: he saw five different species of monkeys in the hike between the boat and his camp. He became a partner in Rainforest Expeditions in 1992 because it seemed like a fun way to make a living. And he was right! Nowadays he’s mostly a passive business partner. In 2016, Kurt was a proud member of the team that designed, implemented and launched the Wired Amazon.
