Born in Atchison, Kansas I started my scouting career as just a young Tiger Cub in one of the local packs. I later moved to a Cub Scout Pack out of Nortonville, Kansas where I went through the ranks of Bobcat, Wolf, Bear and Webelos. Because of no Boy Scout troop in Nortonville I didn’t have the opportunity to bridge into a local troop. After being away from the program for a couple years I was determined to get back into scouting and joined Troop 94 in Atchison, Kansas. Since then my experiences through the program have helped me develop into the person I am today.

In 1999 I spent my first summer at Camp Geiger, and since then I have yet to miss a summer. I served on the Camp Geiger staff for 5 years with the last two being the Program Director.  I was also tapped into the Tribe of Mic-O-Say in 2001 and I am currently a Keeper of the Sacred Bundle. I had the honor to serve as the Tapper during the 5th Session of 2007, and have received the Silver Coup of Service Award. In 2006 I was also given the honor as the Over 18 Geiger Staff Man of the Year.

I obtained the rank of Eagle Scout during the spring of 2004 as a member of Troop 94, where I also earned my Religious Award. I went to my first National Jamboree in 2001 as a part of the Pony Express Council contingent, and since then I have served on the Action Center “B” Shotgun Staff at the 2005 National Jamboree, and as one of the Assistant Scoutmasters for the 2010 National Jamboree. I have also been to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, and National Camping School and I am currently certified as a Program Director.

During my time in school I was involved with a number of other organizations as well. I was active in sports, FBLA, National Honor Society, Student Council, and my local church’s youth group. While attending college I worked at Best Buy as a Mobile Installation Technician and I am currently MECP certified. Since then I have recently graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics and I am happy to be serving as the Otoe District Executive.
