From his early age he was interested in playing outdoors, in the army and everything with adrenaline included. He had the best fun when doing dangerous things and his mother was often annoyed by it because she was scared that he will do something that’ll cost him his health.

After highschool he couldn’t wait to get enlisted in the US Army. It was somethg he found noble and he wanted to get involved into it because of the patriotic feel he always had.

Career development:

After joining the army he became a sergeant from 1981 to 1987. He grew very quick because he is a talent in his field.

His first job included working on the farm of reptiles which showed his interest in doing something wild and different.

He also worked as a fisherman for a while, and a diver. None of these jobs were ever appealing to him.

He was an ordinary factory worker in Ohio at the time he auditioned for the Discovery’ s reality TV series called “Dual Survival.”

He showed his great survival skills and the training he got during his army years.

Today he is an owner and an instructor at the Pathfinder School in Ohio. He  also started his own YouTube channel where he uploads various instructional videos containing survival techniques.

He was in the show only for two seasons, although he was very well liked by the public. He was in the show in 2010 and in 2011 before he was dismissed in 2012 because of the false facts in his military resume he had given to the producers before entering the show.
