George was born and raised in Statesboro, GA, and graduated from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Outdoor Recreation. Finding his passions for the outdoors and helping others at an early age meant that he was constantly outdoors and volunteering any chance he had. He found that he really enjoyed outdoor activities like camping, hiking, kayaking, but was always wanting to share those experiences with others. Wanting to continue his education after high school, he dabbled in a teaching degree but quickly realized that his future lies in the outdoors. Throughout college and after graduation, George focused on sharing his love of the outdoors with the next generation through his work at several different summer camps and outdoor schools across the country. After floating around for a while, he figured that joining the SOAR family seemed like the next big step in his life, so he’s excited to bring everything he’s learned and share it with those around him!
