About Me Trainer, personal coach. I grew up learning about stewardship and living on the last remaining family held Spanish Land Grant in Ca. Understanding, that at best our job is to leave the world a little better then we found It, I've always found my sanctuary and inspiration in nature. Love the crew here at BPL for their passion, wisdom and at times their insanity.
