Bobby O’Connor has been enthusiastic about the outdoors and exploration his whole life.  Following his passion for adventure sports, he attended SUNY Plattsburgh where he received an M.S. in Expeditionary Studies. Bobby is now the Outdoor/Adventure Education Coordinator at Paul Smith’s College. Bobby alongside his colleague Matthew Dougherty developed the Paul Smith’s College Adventure Guide Service. The Guide Service utilizes the outstanding venue of the Adirondack Park to train and prepare students to work with clientele in the front and backcountry.
