Nate is an east coast transplant to the intermountain west. He grew up on Cape Cod exploring all the ocean has to offer. He went on to earn a BS in Biology from St. Lawrence University in upstate New York. After college, Nate spent several years sailing and teaching oceanography for a program called the Sea Education Association (SEA), which is based out of Woods Hole, MA. While working for SEA, Nate was introduced to the west during several stints in Jackson, WY. His experiences teaching and his time spent out west pointed him back towards a graduate program at the Teton Science Schools in Kelly, WY. The program concentrated in field science education and place based education. Nate enjoys translating these skills to The Sage School. When not at school Nate can be found fly fishing, hiking, or skiing with his wife, daughter, and yellow lab, Tulsi.
