Caleb was born in a little bitty town in Northwest Washington called Mt. Vernon. Growing up in the country was fun and taught him such valuable lessons as: always wait until the fruit is ripe, the fruit at the top is for the birds, and…well many more lessons about fruit, and gathered foods learned the hard way.
At the super-self conscious age of 12 he moved to sunny California, where he received his first and only sunburn (ouch!). Not too long thereafter, he began what has been an unending relationship with activism and community service.
At the age of 17, community service agreed to share Caleb with college, and to help him become the first in his family to successfully navigate a college degree – service even agreed to help him do so debt free! In the past few years Caleb (and service) have moved from California back to Washington for his first year with AmeriCorps, mentoring and tutoring high school students; then the two moved back to California for another AmeriCorps term tutoring elementary students. Caleb is now preparing for his longest move – more than 3000 miles to Fairbanks.
When not getting things done for America you can usually find Caleb at the gym, in the kitchen, or wrapped up in music and philosophy, for fun! In addition to exciting task of helping launch the Coop Market, Caleb is excited to babysit his (soon-to-be) newest cousin, and to learn the Tanana language and traditional art from his Uncle Pat.
