IMG_1097 - Version 2

I am a former inner city middle school teacher and avid outdoorsman. I retired from public education after 34 years of teaching and coaching. We first opened The Adventure Center about 10 years ago and I became its director. We have recently lost our lease on the building the Adventure Center was housed in. We are in the process of finding another location for our center. My vision is for the Adventure Center to become the center for adventure education in Upstate New York. My goal is to help people to be effective leaders and productive community members using the experiential model of learning.
