Your Human Connection Project Team is comprised of Kyle Hilken and Mateo Schimpf - a dynamic duo hailing from the rocky shores of Northern California. Kyle and Mateo have been step-in-step for the better part of 15 years - they were best friends in high school, classmates at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and roommates in Denver. 

The two have gone through the pains of adolescence and growth of young professionalism together, all the while developing a convergent world view. They now find themselves expanding this world view on a journey through Latin America, documenting the people, places, and experiences they encounter.
