My goal is to help you relearn the skills of your ancestors. Whetheryou are a descendantof the Vikings, NativeAmericans, Picts, or other honorable people, one thing is undeniable:none of us would be here if our ancestors were not survivors. I was raised in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado by my grandfather:an avid outdoorsman, hunting guide, and mountain man. It was not uncommon for this man to track, kill, and dress a deer before first period at school.
As I grew into my teenage years,I had what can be described as a rocky time and often I would use my grandfather’sskills to take offand live in the woods for prolonged periods of time. Later in life the United States Marine Corps took what my grandfather and the Boy Scouts started and fine tuned it while addingsome discipline. I was honored to serve with the Special Operations K9 both pre and post 9/11. Because I was K9 I hadthe privilege of attending severalschools, federal and private, that many service menwould not get to attend. It also sent me on many missions ranging from extremely dangerous to just flat out amazing. The Corps is huge on pulling people out of the field occasionally, especially during war, to teach real world things they have learned. It was during a counter sniper training course with Special Operations Training Group that I realized I love to teach.
I left the Marines with the intent of pursuing my same jobwith one of the federal branches,but while on that path I metmy wife and started a familyand decided spending a majority of my life in high risk situations was irresponsible.
Parents would see skills that my children, I have 4, had and ask me to teach a class or attend a Cub Scout gathering. I loved every minute, and decidedto truly become like my grandfather I needed to start seeking out the best in the world and learn everything I could from them. This path led me to the instructors at Sigma Three, and the life changing decision to once again join the ranks of the elite,this time in the capacity of an Instructor.
I enjoy teaching classes to all ages and skills, ranging from “Never been in the mountains before” through “Avid outdoorsmen”.
Iam honored to be part of one of the most well organized, qualified, and comprehensive survival schools in the world.
