First year at BOSS: 2008
Current position: Head instructor
Hometown: Riverview, MI
Currently residing in: Lopez island, WA
I came to BOSS because:
I came to boss because I was actively seeking out an experience that would connect me deeply to the natural world and to the part of myself that I believe is natural. I was/am very interested in traditional technology and sought to continue my education in a hands-on environment.
I teach at BOSS because:
I recognize the value of human beings, Being Human. We exist in a very curated and fast-paced world and opportunities to push yourself out of your daily comfort zones are few and far between. To be a facilitator to somebody else’s personal growth and education is truly an honor. It helps that I get to work amongst some of the most incredible people I have ever met and in one of the world’s most beautiful places.
