I served on the National Board of Camp Fire, but before that I was a kid who was 10 years old in 5th grade. At that time I attended Camp Fire regularly after school at Chugach Optional in Anchorage Alaska (both my parents worked). The staff of Camp Fire encouraged me to explore programming. Eventually they allowed me to go back into the school during Camp Fire where I would get on the old computers and learn programming.

I probably spent hundreds of hours programming in BASIC and finding my spark for software development. I went on to do many things with technology and always was thankful to Camp Fire for getting me started.

It was an honor to be able to serve on the National Board of Trustees 20 years later and give back some of my time and funds to an organization that gave me so much. As they say in camp fire #WOHELO (Work Health Love)!
