My career began as an USAF Survival Instructor (SERE-Survival Evasion Resistance & Escape) during the Vietnam era. In 1970, I founded the Institute for Survival Education, the predecessor of Survival Educators. Since then, I’ve worked with a small team of elite, seasoned and highly talented educators (former SERE instructors, USAF pilots, and SAR specialists) delivering top quality presentations and programs to government, business, emergency responders, non-profit and general audiences around the world.
