Meet your Adventure Team

CONNECT WITH THE EXPERTS. Our Adventure Coaches came from all over to Headlands, but share a common passion for our surroundings and thrive on connecting our guests with all Pacific City and Oregon’s North Coast have to offer. Whatever you can think of, they’re up to the challenge – from beach bonfires and bird watching to crabbing and kayaking. Our Adventure Coaches are avid explorers of the Oregon Coast and love to share their discoveries—book a private outing with your personal guide for a trail hike, kayak trip or an adventure you design together. To plan your unique experience, connect with an Adventure Coach at adventure@headlandslodge.com or call  503.483.3000.



Our Adventure Coaches were born to play and born to plan. They can suggest, schedule and deliver an Oregon Coast experience that meets all of your vacation cravings: from biking to fishing, hiking to kayaking; from the best beer, wine and food and local attractions—and much more. Our coaches are ready to help you head out and embrace all that Headlands has to offer.

    Kyle was born in Portland, Oregon, and spent much of his upbringing outdoors as a Boy Scout and third generation Oregonian surfer and fisherman. Kyle grew up working in the daycare that his mom owned, during the summer he would help run the summer camp and took kids on field trips all over Oregon. He fell in love with the uniqueness of the Oregon Coast at a very young age. His first coastal adventures began with learning how to surf and kayak and have evolved to include ocean dory fishing in his boat, kiteboarding and scuba diving. Kyle attended a military high school in Central Oregon and then worked as a technician building prototype machinery for various companies including Siemens Energy, Boeing, and Intel. These days you’ll find Kyle enjoying life here in Pacific City—surfing, fishing and exploring with his dog Koa.

    Daniel was born in Mexico and raised in Texas. He discovered a passion for camping and exploring the outdoors at a young age after joining his local scouts youth group. During this time he learned many useful skills including camping basics, bush craft, and leadership tools. Daniel graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in communication from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Since graduating, Daniel has been working in the hospitality industry for almost ten years. Fortunately for us, Daniel fell in love with the Oregon Coast during a surf trip, and soon after moved to the coast. In his words, “It’s everything I’ve been looking for and more!” And Daniel hasn’t stopped exploring since he arrived. During his free time you’ll find Daniel shooting wildlife photography and sharing the waves with his friends.
