Shane Maxson
Programming Co-Chair

Shane Maxson is a storyteller and graphic designer with a love for the outdoors. Shane pivoted from a career in the therapeutic outdoor industry, where he witnessed the power of the wilderness change people’s lives for the better. His mission is to amplify the voices of companies who embrace our responsibility for the natural world and inspire others to get outside.

Shane believes that as designers we are not designing products for a business, we are designing the future of our world. He geeks out about inclusivity, infographics, trail maps, gig posters, and anything that helps people learn more about our environment.

In 2006, Shane followed his dream to live in the mountains and moved to Asheville from his home in Washington State. Shane continues to follow his passion for adventure and can be found rambling around the mountains of Appalachia and all points beyond.
