    Trail BossPro-red@3x

    Placentia, California 

    I've enjoyed working in the Education field, mainly school settings but also in Outdoor Environmental Education, Adventure Student Travel, Student Educational Cultural and Performance Group Travel, directing programs and tours all over the United States. While directing educational school programs, adventure hikes & camps at various educational institutions, faith based organizations, YMCA'S and Outdoor Education Camps throughout California, Arizona, Washington D.C. New York, etc. I established outdoor education camps and educational programs in the 1980's that are still running today. I was owner/manager of Wilderness Sports; a retail backpacking, climbing and ski/snowboard mountain shop with an outdoor school while in my twenties. I have "thru-hiked" the John Muir Trail (NoBo), climbed Mt. Whitney 3x, Mt Shasta 3x, Mt, Hood and many many other peaks, including Six Pack of Peaks finisher. I've hiked extensively in the Grand Canyon; R2R, Havasupai, etc., and am the founder and lead hiker for the Heritage Hiking Club (established 1976), and Grand Canyon / Havasupai Adventures (established 1980). I am a Red Cross certified First Aid / CPR instructor and NOLS Wilderness First Aid Trained. I live with my wife and two children in Placentia, California.
