Joe Sawyer

North Amer­i­ca Pro­gram Director


Born and raised in the Seat­tle area, Joe grew up explor­ing the Cas­cades. With an ear­ly moun­taineer­ing intro­duc­tion with a climb of Mount Adams at 13 years old, he knew he was hooked. After grad­u­at­ing col­lege at Wash­ing­ton State Uni­ver­si­ty, he dove head-first into the out­door indus­try work­ing at gear shops, climb­ing gyms, and run­ning youth climb­ing pro­grams before final­ly join­ing the Mad­ness team. As the North Amer­i­ca Pro­gram Direc­tor here at Moun­tain Mad­ness, he loves help­ing folks find adven­ture through climb­ing. In his free time, you can find him explor­ing the Cas­cades, rid­ing his dual sport, boat­ing in the Puget Sound, and hang­ing out with his best friend Blue (Chief Bar­ket­ing Offi­cer here at MM).
