Founder/President & Head Instructor
Welcome to SIGMA 3 Survival, my life long hobby, passion, and career! I created this school because of the lack of elite wilderness survival training in the US. There are hundreds of schools to choose from, but not many good ones with a solid teaching curriculum of skills that would work anywhere in the world. My idea behind this training program was to empower people to explore deeper into the wilderness and get off the beaten path. I was never one to hike trails and always preferred bushwhacking into uncharted territory to setup in places that I wouldn’t run into other people. I’ve been an outdoorsman my whole life, but it was the military that really put the fire in me to take it further!
My intention with this survival school was never to teach people to get rescued from being lost in the wilderness. My philosophy is more centered around how to wander anywhere you want in the world and have enough skill to provide for your own basic survival needs indefinitely. When you have these skills, getting lost in the wilderness becomes more of a training exercise than an emergency.
I wanted to empower people from around the world to lose themselves in the outdoors and become immersed in the majesty that God has created around us. I also wanted to train people to be better stewards of the land and the best way to do that is to educate them. Love for the wilderness first comes from knowledge of it, and that is what set me on the path to creating the largest and most comprehensive survival school in the world.
My skills are a mix of military methods as well as the Old Ways of our ancestors. Ever since my youth I have had a calling for the wilderness and a love for the wild places. I believe it is important for every man to pit themselves against mother nature to truly know themselves and that everyone seek to train themselves to be able to survive. Though I will teach many classes, I do not plan to be the main focus of the school as many founders in the other schools try to be. My skills are more than acceptable in all the fields and I have made it an obsession to train under the best instructors in the world in my own personal training. It is my pleasure to personally recruit the most talented instructors from across the planet to teach what is their best specialty skill. A person who is an absolute master of their specific art. My mission is to provide the highest quality training with the best instructors for prices that most can afford!
