While walking through the favelas (ghettos) of Sao Paulo, Brazil, I encountered individuals that taught me the art of being happy, no matter the circumstances. Since that experience I have had a desire learn that lesson. Since then I have worked in the field of helping others, and pursued strengths-based work to help individuals achieve their potential. My wife and I moved our family to Southern Utah from Wyoming to get away from the cold, and who wouldn’t want to play in all the sunshine here? Our 3 young boys love being able to play outdoors any time of the year, and I love finding new adventures to go on. I am excited to embark on a new journey with Diamond Ranch Academy!
