Ever since Bruce was young, he had a great passion and appreciation for the outdoors. It did not matter if he was riding dirt bikes, fishing, climbing trees, or playing sports as long as he was getting outside and being active. Bruce loves all aspects of the outdoors, but has a special place in his heart for being on the water. Fishing, swimming, wake boarding, and surfing are among his favorite water activities.
Bruce moved out to Grand Rapids, MI, in 2003 when his soccer career brought him to Cornerstone University. During his time there he found a lifetime friend and teammate in Mark Decker and 9 years later The Rhino Challenge was born. Bruce is now married to his wife Chelsie, who shares his love and passion for the outdoors. Together they spend their time playing soccer, mountain biking, and getting out on the water.
