Michael Garver is a Vietnam veteran and served as a Deep Sea Diver. Before his tour he trained in the Panamanian jungle for wilderness survival and jungle warfare. During his service he was wounded and spent six weeks in the Army/Navy hospital in VietNam, then following his discharge he returned to California.

He eventually returned to California and earned a Bachelor's degree in Agronomy, and Master's degree in Genetics. Since then, he has been a field geneticist for a major seed company, landscape designer, construction supervisor, and consulted for Southern California Edison, helping people save money, energy, and the environment.
