Devin “Gas Pedal” Falk is currently a first year candidate for an MFA in poetry at California State University of Long Beach, and a very proud uncle. He has wandered aimlessly through society’s milestones to infuse his imagination with experience. He believes in “Life as Metaphor,” so long distance hiking became the obvious evolution for manifesting the richness of his imagination. He is in a state of envy and awe of the PCT Class of 2015. Feel free to e-mail him about his writing, with direct questions about the PCT (firstname.lastname@example.org), or look for him on-trail in 2016.
