“I grew up in the mountains and spent my youth hiking and camping. My fondest memories
are of Grandview State Park in West Virginia. It has the most beautiful overlooks and rock
wall formations. My favorite part as a child was exploring the caves. There was also a place
called “Nature’s Air Conditioner,” where the rocks formed in such a way that cool air blew
out from between the cracks. As a furniture repair technician, I have to be able to find
unique solutions and see what others might miss. Exploring nature has given me that
natural curiosity and awareness of both the small details and the bigger picture.
