Don is a current Palomar student who is pursuing an AA degree in psychology. After a 15-year career as a touring drummer he has decided to change directions and follow his passion for helping people. He plans on becoming a therapist that specializes in addiction and trauma recovery. Don enjoys reading about stoic philosophy and is an advocate for mental health awareness, 12 step programs and one-on-one therapy. As a SWAG Peer Mentor, he hopes he can use his experience touring around the world to connect with other students and help them turn the obstacles in their lives into opportunities to live into their higher self.
