Listen my children and you shall hear the story of Tony and the natural world he holds dear. Once an actor and broadcast tv director in good ole Missouri, I decided to leave it all behind in search of something more meaningful. In 2010, I packed up and headed out to the woods of Maine to work with the Maine Conservation Corps. The experience had such a profound impact on my life I continued to wander from Maine out to California, Oregon, and Washington exploring National Forests and National Parks all along the way. In 2011, the SCA came calling and I headed off to work on the Paciﬁc Crest Trail in California. I spent the summer of 2012 leading a corps crew in the Umatilla National Forest of Washington and Oregon. I then rambled on to the Desolation Wilderness in California to lead a leader crew for the fall. A few things I enjoy: rock climbing, hiking, yoga, paddle boarding, cooking, nature, music,and learning. I’m geared up to share trail skills, outdoor living, and a whole bunch of laughter. I’m excited to lead the Field School with my super awesome co-lead, Mel.
