I run an Adventure Challenge program in central Illinois called Eagle Crest Adventures. https://www.facebook.com/eca.team.building?fref=ts High Ropes & Low Ropes/Initiatives are the bread 'n butter of my work. I work with a wide range of clients, from jr. high youth to Fortune 500 Execs.

When I'm not at work, I'm caving, hiking, or camping (or doing all three at once). My camping ranges from using the pop-up camper with the wife and kids to week-long backpacking in Shawnee National Forest.

In March 2013, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both knees. In order to continue with hiking and backpacking, I have started using trekking poles and moved to an ultralight approaching, carrying less than 25lbs on most trips under 4 days.

I am a hammock camper, with no plans to ever sleep on the ground again.

I currently have a savings account open to have enough money saved up to hike the Appalachian Trail in 2023.
