At seventeen years old, after watching Top Gun, I left home to get a military education and serve in the Navy (four years of service including six months in the Gulf War).
In my fantasy journey to become Batman, I almost killed himself while climbing a glacier in search of the League of Shadows.
I backpack solo in the wilderness because it's cool, for the pictures, and to be an awesome dad.
I lead my colleagues to extreme adventures to help them develop stronger problem-solving skills as well as push them out of their comfort zones.
I served fifteen months as a missionary, and as of today, I survived from pancreatic cancer.
