B.C.’s educational path has been far from traditional. A Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course opened his eyes to the opportunities available in the outdoor industry and led him to pursue an education from Colorado Mountain College where he received an associate’s degree in outdoor education. Since then, he has continued his education with the college through the Wilderness Emergency Medical Services Program where he earned a wilderness EMT certification. B.C. is currently studying snow and avalanches through Colorado Mountain College’s Avalanche Science Program.
B.C. has had every job from screen printing to farming where he learned to work with and communicate with people from all walks of life. B.C. also works as an avalanche educator and volunteers at The Hive in Durango where he teaches skateboarding to youth around Southwest Colorado.
B.C. was drawn to wilderness therapy because of the positive impact he saw in himself and others through spending time in wild places. He enjoys being surrounded by people who are passionate about what they do and are actively trying to improve the lives of others.
When B.C. is not at work he can be found wandering around the San Juan Mountains with his partner and digging holes in the snow.
