SERVANT LEADERSHIP - HUMBLE PRIDE - CHANGE LIVES

Jack's work has largely been influenced by his time at Philmont Scout Ranch, the Boy Scouts of America's premiere High Adventure Base. Instilled here were the values of servant leadership, humble pride and changing lives for the better. After working as a Ranger (backpacking guide) for three years he was promoted to Marketing Manager where he had the opportunity to develop a vision and marketing plan for promoting Philmont's world-class youth development and outdoor leadership programs. This role supported operations for over 20,000 participants annually and reached millions more online. Jack additionally served as the lead photographer, video producer and social media coordinator. 

Three new projects introduced at Philmont that pushed its storytelling mission forward include: 

  • The launch of a new online newsroom and historical archive: www.philmontstories.org

  • The launch of two seasons of the first ever-Philmont podcast: Hike On

  • The publication of Philmont's first two issues of the annual magazine: Scouting Paradise
