As a 1995 Graduate of Del Campo High School I found my calling in the outdoors. I moved to Weed California to attend College of the Siskiyous and then onto Southern Oregon University in Ashland Oregon. I received a double Bachelors of Science in Health Promotion and Fitness Management and a Masters in the Art of Teaching. All the way through my college and well after I held a position as a River Guide and Fishing guide throughout the West coast as well as Canada, Mexico, South America, and Africa. I also worked closely with Clear H2o Films to explore many, until recently un navigated water ways. The experiences that I took from these expeditions brought on the thought of training and fitness as I never saw them before. It taught me that you never know what life is going to throw at you. From wading in swift moving currents in search of the ultimate fishing experience or swimming and paddling in the middle of an uncharted jungle, I learned that fitness is essential to the life that I lead. Whether I am out exploring or just trying to heard my young children, Life is a demanding sport. Upon returning to Del Campo High School to pursue my teaching career I found CrossFit. Crossfit has changed the way I view fitness and will continue the way I train and train students alike. Crossfit will be a part of my life forever and is now the sole belief in what I view as essential to our youth.
