Teddy grew up in Calgary Alberta and took a fascination with first aid when he was a teenager. Teddy worked at his local pool as a life guard from his late teens into his early twenties, all to save up to take his schooling in Emergency medical services to become a paramedic. Once passing his exams and receiving his certification Teddy began a life long career with the Calgary EMS. During his time Teddy grew to appreciate and love his job more and more. He found that, unlike a police officer, he would serve the people who needed him without judgement or hesitation. It did not matter who you where or what you did, if you where suffering, Teddy would help. Teddy worked closely with all walks of life including the impoverished, rich, doctors, police, firefighters and your everyday 'Joe'.
Once hearing about the infection and chaos spreading through Chernarus, Teddy joined a small group of volunteer EMS responders and doctors to volunteer and help out as best he could. Little did he know, Teddy was walking into Hell on earth.
