Summer & Adult Program Manager
Jared grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and spent many weekends and summers among the redwoods of the Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast. With a degree in Audio Engineering, Jared worked in the Live Music and Corporate Audio/Visual industry for over 10 years. A growing passion for personal development led him to leave the audio world for the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives through designing and facilitating leadership development programs. In 2015 his path lead to participating in the Anake Outdoor School, and afterwards the Anake Leadership Program (now Nature Instructor Training). He now brings his skills and experience to Wilderness Awareness School as a Youth and Adult Program Manager.
Jared loves writing and performing his own music, as well as getting outside on a bike, canoe or by foot.
