Raised by the swamp people of central Florida, Pierce felt at home in the Gator Nation. He received a degree in Sustainability Studies and organized outdoor trips for swamp weary students. After graduation, he found a job promoting sustainability at Kona Brewing Co. and quickly became an annoying beer snob. He attended park ranger academy and joined the National Park Service in Gunnison, CO working in environmental education and visitor protection.
