Since graduating high school in 1994, I have maintained employment with no more than a 2-3 month period between jobs. Through my younger years, I worked many jobs in many different fields: auto parts, tire shops, construction, lumber yards, guiding, mine labor and seasonal firefighting. As I matured, I discovered that I would find my niche in the industrial field. I held a job for roughly 4 yrs in California working for a firetruck manufacturer before moving home to Elko, NV where I graduated to gain employment in the gold mining industry where I would remain employed for the next 11 years. isn't the large paychecks I seek from a career in the mining industry, but the rotational work schedules that allow the opportunity to be an active part in my 9 year old daughters life who resides in California. For the last 5 years through mining, I have worked a 7 on-7 off schedule in northern Nevada which allowed me to travel to California every other week to share time with my child. Maintaining this dynamic is my #1 goal both in my search for a career and being able to provide for both her and I and to provide a healthy, active and comfortable lifestyle.

Over the 14 year period before I began my mining career, I was very active in the Fire Service. Along with random stints as a seasonal firefighter for State of Nevada and Bureau of Land Management, I served as a volunteer firefighter in Nevada, Idaho and California. I held positions as firefighter, Engineer, Engine Foreman and Training Officer. I gained valuable skills in working extreme and hazardous situations in a crew-based setting. I gained knowledge in working with many different personalities in a charged environment, in problem solving and thinking "outside the box", learned to be adaptable and to be productive. I also gained expertise in operating heavy equipment in a technical, precise and confined setting under difficult circumstances. I was able to bring these tools into the underground where they have served me well.


Outside of mining and fatherhood, I am the creator and founder of Highcountry Octane Productions... and extreme backcountry snowmobile film company. From humble 1 man beginnings in 2005, I have grown the project to a "crew" involving riders from Nevada, California, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon, Iowa and Wisconsin. We have been producing full feature films (dvds) for 5 consecutive years now having won an industry film award...and are a rapidly growing force within the snowmobile/powersports industry.

While a passion (and more a hobby) with firefighting, this project gives me unique skills in adapting to and working well with others, to working in extreme environments and situations and to creative thinking, which has served me well in the underground mining industry.
