When asked about his passion for the outdoors he responds, “Born on a family farm in southwestern Pennsylvania to a family of outdoor enthusiasts, I was born into a lifestyle full of outdoor activities. Growing up on a farm, I was no stranger to hard work outdoors, but just as important as working hard was playing and enjoying the outdoors and nature. As a former boy scout who loves hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, swimming and climbing, nature has been an integral part of my life since childhood. After graduating college and entering the workforce at a desk job, it took me a few years, way too many added pounds, and a great loss of mobility to realize that was not the life for me.
After reestablishing my relationship with nature and natural movement through spending time outdoors, climbing, crawling, jumping and playing, I saw my body and spirit heal in ways I did not realize it was broken. I developed a passion for sharing the building of that connection with others and hope to pass on an appreciation for all of the splendor and wonder that comes from a life of not just visiting nature, but being nature.”
