Facilitate deeper connections through adventure...


Did you know that simply spending time outside together fosters genuine community, improves your team’s general well-being, reduces stress, boosts creativity, strengthens memory and attention, and increases happiness?*

Getting out of the boardroom and into the open air is more than just a healthy personal decision: it’s a smart business move. It’s a chance for your team to unplug and connect
through face-to-face conversations and unforgettable shared experiences.

With Sojourney Expeditions, taking your team on a guided, relationship-building adventure has never been easier.

We provide customized outdoor experiences that create a rhythm of rest and retreat, encourage group bonding, and refocus values and goals. After a few days with Sojourney
Expeditions, your team will emerge rejuvenated, inspired, connected and driving you towards your mission.

Carl dreamed up Sojourney Expeditions in 2010, while on an adventure to Mount Everest’s Base Camp, a trip that challenged his physical, emotional and spiritual being—and expanded his vision for how life was intended to be lived.

With a degree in Leadership Development from Texas A&M, corporate experience managing and coaching sales teams, certifications in wilderness medicine, and an extensive background in leading white water rafting, backpacking, and rock climbing trips, Carl is the perfect guide to push your team’s limits and provide an elite-level adventure.

With over a decade of experience running adventure retreats, Carl is equipped to handle nearly any request or adapt to any scenario. He has led wilderness trips for Fortune 500 senior officers, C-suite teams from  large ($750+ million) and small corporations, church groups, and high net worth families. Carl also regularly partners with leading executive coaches.

Carl is passionate about exploring the stories of those around him. To him, there is power in connecting through shared experiences. Carl and his wife, Alissa, now reside in Austin, Texas, where they are heavily involved in Young Life, a Christian non-profit organization.
