Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    College was difficult for him-he struggled with questions about who he was, what he believed, and what he wanted to do.

  • 2.

    When he saw the Rocky Mountains for the first time on a spring break trip, he knew that was where he needed to be.

  • 3.

    He came back to school anyways and tried to get back into his routine-bought a suit, scheduled interviews-but he just couldn't do it.

  • 4.

    Instead, he dropped everything, bought a truck, and drove back to the Rockies without any semblance of a plan.

  • 5.

    Settled in Sun Valley, Idaho, and started teaching skiing and whitewater rafting.

  • 6.

    There were days where the sheer joy of where he was living and what he was doing would hit him and cause him to cry of happiness.

  • 7.

    Says you have to listen to yourself, and you have to do what interests you, no matter how hard or scary that might seem.

  • 8.

    Stresses the importance of listening to your own inner voice over all other advice-"that person inside you is never going to steer you wrong."
