Nathan is passionate about three things; his family, his work and his running goals. Growing up in Escondido, CA, Nathan found himself exploring distance running at Orange Glen High School, and literally found his happy place. After completing coursework in Graphic Design at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, Nathan found himself settling into the community and growing roots. As the Creative Director and Co-Founder of Stark Social Media Agency based in Santa Clarita, a suburb of Los Angeles, he finds that his running helps to inspire his work with local businesses, nonprofits and start-ups in his community. In early 2018, he found himself yearning for a challenge outside his comfort zone and began training in 2018 for the Santa Clarita Marathon, and a reignited fire for distance running he’d forgotten was there. Nathan has since completed the Los Angeles Marathon, is working on completing the Triple Crown hosted in his hometown of San Diego, and will be participating in the 2019 San Francisco Marathon, and the 2020 Houston Marathon!
Favorite Superhero: Deadpool, because he made the most of his situation and turned tragedy into triumph.
