His name is Bryan but everyone calls him Dobs. He is a 27 year old Ohioan who currently resides in his hometown of Brecksville. Living there allowed him to have the Brecksville Metroparks and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in his backyard. From a young age Bryan was encouraged to go outside and explore. With such great natural areas so close, he took advantage of it.
He says that is what he loves about Instagram. It is more than just a platform to display photos, it is a way to encourage people to get out and explore. One of the things "Dobs" is most proud of, is spreading this passion on to others. It always amazes him how happy someone is after their first time on a backpacking trip.
He says it is great to see someone resonate with being in nature. Bryan's biggest passion is being outdoors and he loves having the opportunity to share my adventures with people. Other than hiking and photography, his hobbies include rock climbing, trail running, backpacking, snowboarding, yoga and travel. He has a bit of wanderlust and tends to be on the road a lot, mainly exploring anywhere on the East Coast within driving distance. Ohio always holds a place in his heart though between Lake Erie and the great park systems, there is always somewhere beautiful to explore or something fun to do, you just have to know where to look.
