He then went on to become a manager at The North Face, where he enjoyed building teams, creating community centered programs, and promoting outdoor exploration. In his prior role, before returning to university, he managed environmental compliance, permitting, and the quality control teams at 3 factories in Bristol Bay and Ketchikan, Alaska.
