He used to be a rancher. Well known for his helpfulness and authenticity, he's a humble, hard-working man. After the virus spread, he lost his family, he lost his friends and he lost his ranch, but he never lost the will to work hard and help others.
Originally from Oregon he made his way towards Europe to seek refuge, his mom died and sister didn't make it, and his wife tried to survive, but after having been "turned" he didn't have any choice but to do the unthinkable. Eventually he ended up stranded in Chernarus after having fled from Greece when the virus caught up with him there. Then the outbreak reached Eastern Europe and he had nowhere left to go. He tried to find out what went wrong, he tried to fight it, but after communication and the infrastructure went down and he was all out of options, his main focus has been to help as many as he can and to fight on. The life as a rancher has taught him many lessons; from how to manage supplies, to having great patience. Hunting, fixing cars, carpentry and music are deeply rooted passions, whilst things like cooking, hiking and sewing are skills he's still trying to master.
He's open and social, trustworthy and a great companion, but also careful with whom he shares his adventures and ideas, for trusting the wrong person, he knows, could cost him greatly.
