ABOUT ME:  I’m a part time rocket engineer, but full time fresh air seeker. I've been addicted to the outdoors since I was a kid in Texas. My friends and I spent our time catching bullfrogs, blowing up anthills, and fishing off the dock. When older, I joined the Boy Scouts where I learned basic survival skills and self-reliance, but more importantly learned to respect and appreciate the wild. As an adult, I’ve become a modern day nomad following jobs across the country which has provided me the wonderful opportunity to explore a lot of the US. I’m currently living in Cali and when I’m not building rockets for SpaceX, you can find me in the garage tinkering on one of the vehicles or out in the dirt breaking them.
