My passion for traveling and interacting with new cultures started at a young age. My family lived all over the U.S. and spent a few years living in Sicily. I served in the military for 8 years where I developed my skills in evaluating, organizing, and leading situations. The military gave me the opportunity to work with individuals from all over the world. During this time, I realized the importance of aiding those in need and connecting with different cultures. In 2014, I made Florida my home where I got into the outdoor industry as an outdoor guide while completing college. Introducing students to new experiences like scuba diving, caving, whitewater rafting, backpacking, and camping. I have a certification as a wilderness first responder and an ACA level 2 costal kayaking. During my free time, I enjoy a relaxing day on a standup paddle board while exploring the the natural springs of Florida.
