Project Leader, William Hough
William’s favorite color is red. He has spent the past decade doing manual labor, from ranching in Southern Chile and tall-ship sailing to ﬁve years of trail and chainsaw work. As a Chilean-American he has a fondness for ponchos, mate’ and landscapes that remind him of the motherland. By ﬂuke he graduated college in Massachusetts with a degree in Literature, focusing on Latin-American post-modern poetry. He has not used those skills once nor successfully brought it up in conversation. He is a Wilderness EMT, an avid bike rider and the voice of our generation. For the past two winters he has been living in Oakland, California and has been sharpening his pulaski, waiting to return to the mountains.
