Rudy reached his position through persistent volunteering, combined with an open-minded approach to offering MAPS support in any way he saw possible. Before initially volunteering at MAPS, Rudy was a wrestling coach for children and adults. His interest in psychedelic integration formed his direction with MAPS as he brings a mentality of honesty and determination to the team. Psychedelic Science 2017 gave Rudy an opportunity to dive into the field of his passion, which was the jumping point of his career. He fulfills his dream to travel and meet new faces through supporting outreach events and psychedelic groups around the world.
