I have been involved in Scouting since 1982, when I first started as a Tiger Cub back when that program was still relatively new. I have been with a total of five different units across three states and four councils. I have earned both Arrow of Light and Eagle, and I've been through Wood Badge. I've served as Los Fierros District Membership Chair and briefly as Training Chair. I also served as the Unit Commissioner for Troop 29, and as "medic" for various district and council events.

I am still currently listed as a Merit Badge Counselor for Aviation, Bird Study, Emergency Preparedness, Fire Safety, and First Aid.
