Outside of work, you can typically find Chad out on a rock face or wading in a river. He loves climbing, fly fishing (he needs to give me some tips on my casting technique), and he has a love for photography too. Oh yeah, he's also a bit of a nerd, so he’s almost always tinkering with some piece of gear or strutting around town in his NASA t-shirt. That works fine for us!
Growing up in a small manufacturing town in Southern Indiana, Nate has been fascinated with creating things and exploring electricity from a very early age. But as it happens, in a sudden act of rebellion, Nate chose to leave Indiana any way he could. The Marine Corps was the escape and they assigned him to be a weather forecaster. The Marine Corps, of course, moved him all around and he finally landed in San Diego in 2009. With a combat deployment in his near future, Nate began to enjoy the natural resources of the area and started rock climbing and sailing but was soon off to Afghanistan. After his return, Nate continued to enjoy the outdoors but in late 2012, the Marine Corps wanted to send him to the next stop but Nate decided San Diego was better so he decided to go to school instead.
Nate has been active member of the student veteran community, tutoring math to other vets and helping them with the transition back to civilian life. During the summer of 2014, Nate hiked the Appalachian Trail to raise money and awareness for equine based therapy for veterans suffering from PTSD.
