In his own words...
Why are you involved in MMTA?
I'm a trail runner and 26 miles of wooded trails within 1 mile of my house sounds like a dream come true. The trail project will also help improve the lives of citizens in the community and spur social and economic improvements in Hurricane.
If you could only pick one activity on the trails, what would it be?
Running. A long trail run in the woods frees the mind and feeds the soul.
What is something no one else knows about you?
As a history major in college, my capstone research project was on the history of professional bass fishing.
What other nonprofits and/or charities are you passionate about?
Building Trails, Building Community.
