I was born and raised in Long Beach, CA. I grew up learning about the outdoors from my Dad and uncles where I learned lessons like etiquette, sportsmanship and humility. Since then I've developed a deeper appreciation for all outdoor activities and sports. I carry many of those traits with me on a daily basis to motivate myself and learn about my surroundings and those I work or interact with. I tried the junior college scene out for a few semester before stepping away to work in construction. After being laid off I decided to go back to school to attain an associate science degree. After accomplishing that branch of my education I am now looking to get back to a full time, permanent position somewhere.
