Duncan grew up in small-town New Hampshire in a family of travelers and educators. During high school, he spent time traveling with his family and studying in France, Spain, Costa Rica, Senegal, Tanzania, Bhutan, Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand.
After high school, Duncan graduated with honors from Whitman College with a degree in Rhetoric and Film Studies and a minor in French. In pursuing his French degree, he spent a semester living in Paris and studying at several French universities. Back at Whitman, his senior thesis focused on civility in public discourse, and he looks forward to more VISIONS students putting the Circle mentality to work around the world!
In addition to travel, camping, biking, skiing, and general outdoor shenanigans, Duncan enjoys regularly hosting Couchsurfers and travelers from around the world at his home in Bozeman.
