Trevor was born and raised in the small farm town of Coventry, CT. His drive for the outdoors began to develop early as he was heavily influenced by his family. His father was an avid wing shooter and bass fisherman, spending ample amounts of time on the bass boat all over the state of CT, where Trev often slept on the deck during all-night fishing events.
Growing up on a lake, you could always find him fishing. Whether he was using a spinning rod or a fly rod, most of his time was spent catching freshwater species ranging from sunfish to largemouth, or night fishing for bullheads.
The passion grew into full-blown addiction with the introduction to new outdoor activities such as archery hunting, saltwater fishing, and shed hunting.
Trevor has followed his passion to some amazing places, such as being a full-time fisherman on a charter boat as well as a bone taxidermist with Dermestid beetles. He is immersed in the outdoors year-round, but what truly drives him is sharing the excitement with others as they experience the feelings that he had at such a young age when he shot his first pheasant, caught his first fish, or when he first exchanged stories with other like-minded outdoorsmen.
These memories are like the sunrise painting the waters or the sunsets slowly drifting over a field. As a host on The Outdoor Drive Podcast, he hopes to share his passion and drive with others, in hopes to inspire them to get out there and experience that which he has found such a passion for in his own life.
Trevor Berwick, Outdoor Drive Podcast Co-Host
Stephen was born and raised in Show Low, AZ to a humble family of ranchers and timber workers. He cut his teeth in the outdoors chasing both big and small game in the White Mountains of Arizona. Through school, he worked with multiple outfitters, locating and filming target game for clients and assisting in their pursuit. After completing high school, Stephen Joined the U.S. Army and served 8 years, with a tour of combat to both Iraq and Afghanistan. Upon his Honorable discharge, he returned to Arizona to pick up where he had left off.
Two years later, he and his wife Kim relocated to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. While struggling to reintegrate into civilian life, he turned to hunting as a primary means of clearing his head and reconnecting with his roots. With nearly year-round seasons and fishing plentiful, the outdoors quickly became an addiction and life began to revolve around it. Being fully immersed in the outdoors played a critical role in his ability to let his mind fully return from combat and transition from the mindset of a combat-wounded veteran to that of an outdoor mentor.
This drive led him to begin his time as a volunteer guiding hunts and organizing events in Virginia for Operation NPLB Outdoors, as well as assisting in the education of outdoor activities to other transitioning veterans. He pursues this in hopes of helping others transition back to a near-normal life after time in service overseas. It has become a true passion, and he continues to share his knowledge and experiences as the Co-Host of The Outdoor Drive Podcast, a Content Creator, and an ambassador to the outdoors.
