Paxton Crystal has been leading crawls for Boston Crawling since 2018, so he certainly knows his way around some wild history and good beer! Though he grew up outside of Portland OR, he has called the East Coast his home since moving out here in 2013. He is a regular guide for the Independence Crawl, the Fenway Crawl, and even served as the lead guide for New York Crawling during their grand opening in 2019! His interests include being a grad student at Emerson, Animal Crossing, and taking angsty pictures of his cat Coco. His favorite beer is the Harpoon Flannel Friday, since it tastes great and he loves wearing flannel shirts. Cheers!
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Julie loves all that Boston has to offer. Julie is a current middle school history teacher who also loves to hit up the local brewery scene. She has lived in the midwest, the Caribbean, and New York City but has always considered Massachusetts the best place to be! In her free time, she enjoys road-tripping, getting up to the White Mountains in New Hampshire, long walks with her dog, and reading a good book.
Catherine lives in Boston, where she is pursuing degrees in Theatre and History at Northeastern University. She loves talking about history, theater, books, and Boston.

She majored in history at the College of the Holy Cross and more importantly, was named a “pub rat” for her graduating class.
MEET HALLIE !
A born and bred New Englander, Hallie spent four years in Pennsylvania at Gettysburg College, where she majored in Anthropology.

MEET JULIA !
A Massachusetts native, Julia has always loved the Boston’s rich history, and of course the breweries! She graduated from Boston Conservatory in 2019 with a degree in voice performance, and has been acting and singing all over ever since. When she’s not performing or leading Independence Pub Crawls, she’s looking for dogs or cats to pet, reading, listening to her collection of 174 vinyl records, doing puzzles or watching horror movies. She loves meeting crawlers from all over the world and can’t wait to meet you!
