Growing up I moved around a lot due to my family being military. We settled central NY back in 2000. This is where I spent a good amount of time on farms and out in the country. Developing a fondness for the outdoors I went to SUNY Brockport for "Environmental Science and biology terrestrial ecology". It is kind of a long winded degree I guess. Back in 2009 I graduated and with my new found degree I could only manage landing a gas station job. It was a year later when I found the SCA and I am quite excited to leave pumping gas behind me.
