About The Director

Our Background

This program has been in the making for the past 15 years...

and, really, throughout my whole life. I grew up with a dad who took me camping and hiking in the mountains. Some of the times that I have felt closest to God have been while pondering in the wilderness away from worldly distractions. All things in the wilderness testify that there is a divine creator!

Since returning home from my mission...

I’ve worked with EFY, AFY and HEFY during the summers. This has given me a love for youth programs. I have a Masters Degree in Outdoor Adventure Programming. Taught as a seminary teacher for the past 10 years, I recently made a change to going full time doing YWE trips.
