Childhood dream: State ranger

Current occupation: Shop helper at Lowe’s.

“My dream was to become a state ranger dressed in green, I pursued my dream and graduated college with a degree in forest health, my wife later had a child and i decided to stay instead of leaving my family. Later I roamed around where we lived at the time and found an apple orchard. I worked with them until sun up till sun down. After 7 years I decided to leave and later I worked with a church camp for 12 years. I was a helper there, but I quit because they did not agree with me and my political views. Finally I ended up here at Lowes, I originally was just helping out with the snow but they decided to keep me. Five years later I meet you.”
