About Brad Moskowitz

Brad Moskowitz not only loves the outdoors, but he also has a passion for sharing with others the transformative power of the natural world. Teaching future outdoor educators takes him well beyond the classroom to the mountains, forests, and waters of New England, and even to the raging rivers, enchanting deserts and jagged peaks of the American West. His students become instructors for programs like Outward Bound and NOLS, teachers and leaders in public and private schools, and mountain guides on the earth’s most breathtaking terrain.

He is an avid rock climber, mountain and gravel cyclist, a former rafting guide, and an accomplished skier who enjoys all disciplines, but prefers the Telemark turn in backcountry terrain. His 1999 honeymoon was a 1,200-mile, off-road, self-contained mountain biking trip that followed the continental divide from Jackson, WY, to Farmington, NM.

Looking back on the 21 days of riding, camping and coping with the challenges of the trip, he admits, “It wasn’t the most romantic of honeymoons.” Looking forward, he says, “I tell my students that the role they take in outdoor education has the enormous capacity to change someone’s life, which then has the potential to affect change in communities, society at large, and the world.”
