Caleb was born and raised in Missouri where his parents introduced him to the outdoors. They camped, floated, hiked and played outside every chance they had. He moved to Texas after college to work for Backwoods, an outdoor equipment company, where he learned about Explore Austin. Caleb has been a competitive cyclist since the age of 15 and has had many influential mentors along the way. He is particularly excited about being a Mentor and sharing his experiences and life lessons with his Explorers. Caleb's mentors have positively affected his life path and he hopes to be just as impactful as they were. He believes that one of the most important traits to have is a focused and healthy amount of self-confidence.
