For Oscar, nature has an unexplainable gravitational pull, and he can often be found running barefoot, enjoying the feel of the mud between his toes on any given occasion.
Oscar has been a Primitive Pursuits participant since the fourth grade. Through the program, he has accumulated seven years of outdoor experience. Oscar also has had approximately one and a half years of paid working experience as a youth mentor through Cornell Cooperative Extension programs. He enjoys working with youth, as well as building his skills as a leader and outdoor survivalist, both skills of which he hopes to apply to his future endeavors, which includes working towards becoming a social worker.
