I like a lot of different things, but mostly I sum everything up into two passions: Nature and Technology.
I have a passion for taking care of our planet and sharing adventures in the outdoors. I have experienced living like a hunter-gatherer – making my own tools for harvesting wild edibles and living off that land for short periods of time. In 2006 I began working with the Anasazi Foundation guiding youth on primitive living treks in the Tonto National forest in Arizona. That experience has changed my life and I’m always telling people how great it is to work there. While in college, I guided over a hundred trips in the Tetons and surrounding area.
I’m a strong advocate of Leave No Trace principles. In addition to Anasazi, I’ve also worked with Aspiro Adventures, and am on the Grand Canyon Council of the Boy Scouts of America. I’ve guided trips for youth and adults, worked at scout camps, been a ropes course instructor, river guide, wilderness survival instructor, and more. I have a passion for hands-on learning and I love guiding outdoor treks to help other’s share in the experience.
If you would like to join me on an adventure in the wilderness and learn how to make fire, shelter, find wild edibles and more, please inquire here:
I first discovered DOS on an old IBM machine in 1988 when my older brother took a programming class and showed me what he was doing. Instant geek love. Scroll ahead to 1993, when I figured out how to use a modem to connect to the internet to play some terminal games or chat with people (no Graphical User Interface then, just BBS and some RPG). Years later, I made my first website in 1999.
