"I appreciate what a great supervisor you are and couldn’t be happier to work with you."

– Travis G.


I have been involved in Scouting since I was in second grade. I earned my Eagle Scout in 1993 from the Denver Area Council, then became an Assistant Scoutmaster in Troop 13 with the Longs Peak Council. Scouting can be credited for bringing me out of my shell and providing both fundamental life skills and tremendous leadership opportunities. My ten best summers were spent working at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch, serving in every position from Counselor-In-Training to Camp Director.

I earned three degrees at the University of Northern Colorado. Two undergraduate degrees, Communication and Journalism, and a Master’s in Communication. This is where I met my wife, Michelle, in Geology Lab Class! She jokes that Geology is the only class she ever earned a C in because she was distracted by me! We were both honored to spend a spring season as Disney Interns, where we both completed Ducktorate degrees. While at Disney, I proposed to her outside of Cinderella’s Castle and we returned to Colorado engaged.

Immediately out of college, I began an unfulfilling career in the car rental business in Florida. It was then when I realized the contentedness of living a life of service. My BSA career began in 2005 with the Denver Area Council, where I remained for almost ten years. I held five titles in Denver before being promoted to Field Director with the Orange County Council in California near the end of 2014.

While in Orange County, my team earned “Top Team” honors in 2015. I was also asked to help design a specialist model for the council. This visionary model served the council well through my time in Orange County. After three years of success in Orange County, I was promoted again to be the Assistant Scout Executive in the Pacific Skyline Council (PacSky), located in Foster City, California.

I have thoroughly enjoyed serving PacSky since Spring of 2018. During my time with the council, I led the recruitment effort of over 450 girls in 2018-2019. I also led the charge on Journey to Excellence, guiding the council to Gold achievement, as one of the top 5 performing councils in the Western Region in JTE in 2019. I continue to guide the team through numerous challenges in 2020, 2021, and 2022, including the BSA Bankruptcy, the Coronavirus, and a fire that destroyed an entire camp.

In my limited spare time, I have been a past Rotarian, serving on the board of the University Hills Rotary Club in Denver. I also enjoy pickleball, racquetball, electric bike riding, swimming, and walking. Denver is my hometown and I grew up a diehard Denver Broncos fan. Michelle and I celebrated 20 years of marriage last year. She is an elementary school teacher that has adapted well to the many different geographies we have lived in. Our happiest times are when we are exploring a new place or trying something new and different.
