Loren is a registered nurse (R.N) who provides care to patients in the ICU that are recovering from open-heart surgery, vascular surgeries, and lung transplants. In addition to his experience in the ICU, Loren worked as a first responder in backcountry environments.
In his free time Loren races mountain bikes, lifts weights, goes camping, and regularly trains with firearms. Given his physically demanding passions, by his own testament, he is usually in pain from one activity or another resulting in less sleep and energy than needed.
