My Story

Born in the actual wilderness of Idaho I spent my childhood in the outdoors: skiing, climbing, hiking, mountain biking, whitewater kayaking and fly-fishing. It was a utopia of a childhood but the stubbornness of youth had me striving for something different.

After years of being a fly-fishing and white water rafting guide on one of the most premier rivers in the world I finished my degree in aerospace engineering thinking I had it made. My shiny new career and “big” salary was going to make me happy and fulfilled like I always imagined. After 3 years into a job designing satellites in a slow moving and less slowly dying company I looked in the mirror and realized I was the most unhappy I had ever been.

Was this what success looks like? What happened to the missing part of me?  Where was my life headed?

I realized I had to get back to my roots and re-discover myself so I quit my job and decided I was going to change everything and design the life I always knew I should be living. This journey took time but everything I was doing compounded together to create what is now the most kickass life I can imagine. Today when I look in the mirror I see a savage yet loving man living a fucking dream life that is balanced across the things that matter to me. Since deciding to make this change I have done a lot of things like: becoming a successful electronic music producer and touring across the country, starting several online businesses, starting a Youtube channel sharing my outdoor adventures, moving to Colorado and building the dream home for my wife, and finding a career that I truly enjoy that pays very well and enables my dream lifestyle.

I now spend my weekends as an adventurer. Skiing gnarly peaks, climbing Colorado's tallest mountains, mountain biking the most remote trails, or trail running to unknown fly-fishing locations. I have always found balance and meaning through adventure and physical hardship.  

Now I don't want to say I am perfect by any means and will be open about the ways I am trying to make my life better and the thinking and stagey I am using
