While studying communications at Brigham Young University-Idaho, Nathan built a sales organization with 10+ sales professionals that sold door-to-door during the summer. Over the course of 3 summers, Nathan earned enough money to graduate college debt-free and travel regularly to Uruguay, South America, where he lived for 4 years.
In Uruguay, Nathan taught English part-time and trained over 200 full-time volunteers. Nathan worked under and was mentored by Ryan Olsen, area president of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co, a global insurance firm, and Tom Smith, co-founder of Partners In Leadership and a three-time New York Times Bestselling author. He traveled the country training individuals and leading group trainings of 80+ volunteers. While in Uruguay, Nathan met his future wife, Bianca. They were married and moved back to the United States together in 2021.
