I came to BOSS Because…

I first came to BOSS because I wanted to learn greater self-sufficiency, instead of feeling dependent on technological fixes.

I teach at BOSS because I love the canyons, deserts, and mountains of Southern Utah. This is an amazing place to learn new skills and share old ones.
