Civilian Training:

Like most people in this business, I grew up with a fondness for the wilderness. Raised in a lower-middle class family in a small rural town in southern Missouri, there wasn’t much else to keep my mind occupied, so I sought adventure in the wooded hills and fields of my home. I found inspiration for my youthful exploits in the books I read, which in turn would inspire the choices in my life.

I read everything from military history and philosophy to the classics such as Robinson Crusoe and Treasure Island. I also had a fascination with the American Mountain Man Era and early Frontier days. Needless to say my future seemed pretty predictable.

I promptly joined the Army right out of high school in 2001, with the hopes of adventure. Shortly thereafter, 9/11 happened.

I spent the next several years serving as an Infantry man in units such as the 75th Ranger Regiment and the 101st Airborne Division. After I got out in 2013, I quickly discovered the world had changed more than I had thought. Regular civilian life didn’t suit me well, and I once again sought solace in my old books. It was by pure accident that I found out I could be an Outdoor and Wilderness teacher, and so started my newest adventure.

I spent 5 years bouncing around from school to school all over the U.S., hunting down certification after certification. There were some hard times, but I never once gave up. Now I’m where I belong, ready to teach and assist others along their own path here at SIGMA 3.
