Jarod is a Mavericks surfer, a former Intelligence Analyst, and a relentless tinkerer. Since he was a kid he has been training to become a “master in the art of living” who tries to make little distinction between his work and his play, his education and his recreation, and his love and his religion. The goal is an integrated, authentic, and balanced way of thinking, acting, and living in the world.
