Trevor grew up in southern Ohio and was active with Boy Scouts of America, where he developed a love for the outdoors. He earned an Associate’s Degree with emphasis in Geology, then enlisted in the US Navy. After ten years serving as a chemistry technician on nuclear-powered submarines, the lack of windows caused him to miss the outdoors. He was honorably discharged in 2016 and moved to Augusta in order to pursue his Bachelor’s degree in Ecology at Augusta University. He found an online review of Phinizy Swamp Nature Park and fell in love. He now serves as the Park Caretaker. In his free time, he brews wine from local native plants, hikes, and reads.
