He graduated from Skowhegan Maine after attending the two year Conservation Program. He then joined the US Navy and served on active duty from 1988 to 1994. He then joined the US Forest Service and started on a Engine crew before moving onto a Fuels Management crew that fall.(https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/r2/jobs/?cid=fseprd480033). From there he went to work for the FSS in Fairbanks Alaska (https://afs.ak.blm.gov/fireops/fire-operations/specialists.php).
