Randy epitomizes a time in my life where the road split - a decision to stagnate or transform. I chose the tougher road, to find my true self and start the epic journey of growth. Through outdoor adventure and wellness, Randy opened my eyes to another world where creativity, adrenaline and strength can balance with professional accomplishment, compassion and integrity. I went from participating in destructive hobbies to finding a passion for adventure sports. I went from leading a delinquent life to leading NASA teams. I went from feeling lonely to marrying my beautiful wife on a mountaintop in New Zealand. My life forever changed after meeting Randy at that fork in the road; I am eternally grateful for his guidance, support and love.
Current status: Contracting Officer, NASA Ames Research Center
