Steve’s first VOC project was on a mine reclamation project in the Chalk Creek/Mt. Princeton area in 1991. He became “hooked” on VOC after the first day when he was fed spectacular food, a cold beer and a free pass to the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. He soon found out that VOC has another meaning- – “Volunteers for the Over Committed”! VOC projects have provided lifelong friendships, taken him to parts of Colorado that he would not have visited and most importantly – meeting his wife, who was his first VOC instructor. For the past 19 years he has lead VOC crews in the Mt. Evans and Lost Creek Wilderness Areas to perform much needed trail maintenance.
Steve retired from Lockheed Martin after a 32 year career.
