Nathan, known to most as Nate, is a co-founder of PEAR and an avid believer of dreams and positivity. He has spent most of life in love with athletics in which he credits for instilling in him a strong sense of team and accountability. Nate loves to read, write, and dissect pieces of literature. He believes we all have a beautiful story to tell but that we don't always know how to tell it. A Chico, California native he spent the years from 2011-2016 living in southern California in the cities of San Diego and Long Beach before returning to his hometown. Prior to his return he spent two months venturing around the United Kingdom and Europe from which he gained a larger respect for the similarities between people and felt a pull to try and build connections between all people with dreams of a global community.
