He has a B.A. from Messiah College in Adventure Education and worked with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Watershed Education Program as intern. He is certified as a Leave-No-Trace (LNT) Trainer and a Wilderness First Responder (WFR), and has led various wilderness trips that focus on reinvigorating people's relationship with God, creation and each other.

He has a passion for living simply and contributing to a world that cares deeply for and protects God’s creation and His people.
