A husband and father of one, Thor is an outdoor adventurist and long time educator in the fields of Adapted Physical Education and Health & Wellness. Through his work, Thor has seen first hand the holistic connection between immersion in nature, physical activity (body) and positive mental development (brain). He has designed and led outdoor school and community based programs for over 25 years with children ranging in ages from 3 to teenagers as well as for adults.
As a proponent of the value of outdoor experiences for a well-rounded and healthy lifestyle and a firm believer in unstructured play, the path toward the TimberNook philosophy was easy and organic. He has witnessed time and time again the positive transformation that takes place in children physically, mentally, emotionally and behaviorally when they are allowed to unplug and fully immerse themselves in natural sensory experiences. Among the most important of these is unstructured play in nature for long periods of time.
Thor is very excited to bring the TimberNook philosophy and his expertise in offering programming to the children in the San Diego area.
