The One Called Bull became an official member in 2005. Several years of watching various friends join Carson Valley #85 and helping with a few events here and there on occasion a moment happened where life no longer seemed to be going in the right direction. That's when the call to serve was answered and the view of the world forever changed.

Bull has held the office of Director, Treasurer and President for Carson Valley #85. He has chaired / co- chaired various fundraisers including Carson Valley Days.

Currently he works for a design & engineering firm doing Design / Drafting and Project Management while moonlighting occasionally as a wannabe DJ.

A goal of his is to do a TED talk about volunteering in today's world and how it's transformed from one generation to the next.

'Helping children brought me to Active 2030...but it's the people who surround me which kept me coming back.'
