I became an ASM for Troop 125 back in 1994 as an 18 year old graduating Eagle Scout of the troop. I always loved being in the troop and wanted to help other boys have as much fun as I did and teach the things I learned through my 10 years in Scouts. After a few years I moved out of town for school, and then eventually started my life and family. I was away for many years, but when my son became Boy Scout age 4 years ago and we were back in Sonoma County, it was a no brainer what troop we were going to at least check out. We live in Rohnert Park so we also checked out local troops here and in Santa Rosa. But my son, being so much like me, chose Troop 125. He loved the fact that it is such an active troop. Camp outs every month, hikes throughout the year and always out doing something fun. All of the things Boy Scouts is supposed to be about. I was especially happy that my Scoutmaster Mr. Hanna was still here after all of these years.
I am currently a Manufacturing Planner and an online health and fitness coach. I have a degree in Culinary Arts and have worked several industries over the years including Restaurants, Health and Fitness, and Manufacturing. My passion is helping people and that all started through my Boy Scouts career. I have always been some sort of volunteer or coach. I have coached my sons baseball team, my daughters Softball team, and volunteer for many sports events at Analy High School where my son plays football.
When I'm not at a troop event I enjoy cooking, working out, camping and hiking (both with Troop 125 and with my family), motivating others (young and old), and coaching and attending my kids various sports events.
