Hagen has lived on Southern Vancouver Island since he moved from Berlin, Germany at the age of 8. He quickly adapted to the change in scenery, leaving city life behind for the beauty of the island and developing a love for nature and the calmness of the outdoors. You can find him on the trails every weekend when he isn’t studying to finish his Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Victoria. As a Business student, Hagen has a nack for improving processes and systems as well as experience in corporate outreach programs through his involvement with the Commerce Student Society. The cancellation of many indoor activities that stemmed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic reinforced Hagen’s love for the outdoors, and with so much extra time on his hands, he decided to give that time back to the community and join the Nature Trails Society where he hopes to contribute his skills to the society’s vision of a world class trail network!
