Always outside, he quickly developed a love for nature by catching frogs in the pond, walking the river behind his home, and visiting his mom who worked at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. He has worked three summers and three winters guiding in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Between seasons there, he attended Cleveland State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences. Eager to explore and understand the world around him, he is always seeking the next adventure.
