Meet the Team
Founder & CEO
As the founder of Sourced Adventures, Kyle’s goal is to build the best adventure travel company around. Sourced Adventures has grown a small operation in 2013 to one of the most innovative travel companies in the industry. In 2016 he was named one the Outdoor Industry Association’s 30 Under 30 founders and influencers.
He got his start in the outdoor industry guiding Yosemite National Park tours for Incredible Adventures, a tour operator based out of San Francisco, then went on to manage the New York City market for LivingSocial’s “Adventures” division overseeing the company’s local adventure programming in NYC.
Kyle’s expertise is delivering world-class experiences for our customers. He also loves to travel, play soccer, and ride his bike.
As GM, Matt works to make sure we offer superb guest experience to our existing customers while continuing to grow as a company in all the right ways! Strategic program development, financial management as well as overseeing sales and operations are all in his wheelhouse.
Matt started in the Outdoor Industry as a Trip Leader for Chewonki in Maine. After college in Vermont (where he Ski Patrolled), Matt guided for Overland in Costa Rica and then for LivingSocial’s Adventures in Mexico and Puerto Rico. Following two years in NYC’s tech scene, Matt was thrilled to join Sourced Adventures and work to help build a company that reflects his values and passions.
When he’s not in the office, Matt likes to travel and regularly enjoys escaping the city to hike, sail or ski or circumnavigate Manhattan by kayak!
Director of Operations
An avid skier, Eli’s goal at Sourced Adventures is to carve great customer experiences like he carves powder. Vendor relationships, inventory management and handling operations are the main responsibilities of this master of making things happen. That and curating good times for our 12,000+ guests a year!
Getting his start in the industry as a Ski Instructor in Vermont, Eli was looking to turn his passion for the outdoors into a lifestyle and set his sights upon Sourced Adventures. Offering trips year-round, Sourced Adventures helps provide city dwellers with accessible and affordable ways to escape the city. Merging passion with occupation was suddenly attainable, and Eli hastily made his way to the big apple, eager to spread the joy of adventure.
With expertise in customer service, logistics, and Chinese checkers, Eli was a perfect fit for Team SA. When not working you can find him eating Sri Lankan food or playing soccer.
Mai runs our Adventure Cafe. An extension of Sourced Adventures, Adventure Cafe is a concept cafe which aims to get New Yorkers out on day trips from NYC. Adventure Cafe is the face of the Sourced Adventures brand, it serves as our downtown pickup location for our trips, and is also a place for customers to purchase tickets and ask questions about the year-round adventures we offer. We also serve really great local coffee and food.
Born in Israel, Mai got the travel bug early on in her life when she moved to Chicago as a kid. You might say the traveling hasn’t stopped since.
Mai earned her stripes in the industry as a tour guide. She has guided trips all around the world and continues to pursue her passion for traveling, adventure and coffee!
