Gene and his wife Chrissy moved to Northern Nevada in 2016, having been born and raised in Southern California. Gene's love of the outdoors started with camping and fishing trips with his Grandfather. That love of the outdoors led Gene to share his experiences with his children, and expanded to off road racing and riding all over California and Nevada.
After 30+ years in business, spanning Aerospace and Corporate Real Estate Services, Gene and his wife moved to Winnemucca in search of a rural lifestyle. One that would allow quick and easy access to nature, along with the trails and areas that would give them the opportunity to lead the lifestyle they desired.
Finding a home in Paradise Ranchos, they enjoy horseback riding, off road trails, and raising their horses, goats and chickens on a ranch surrounded by beautiful mountains, and spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
After participating in NOS events, Gene and his wife found the staff and volunteers friendly and engaging, with a passion to share the NOS philosophy.
Gene has joined NOS to help youth and adult alike, in getting the various benefits and enjoyment that the outdoors, and the NOS programs have to offer.
