Hunter grew up in and around the Crowd Management industry and always dreamed of someday having the opportunity to work for S.A.F.E. Management.

Ron wrote in his acknowledgements that “[w]hen I wondered whether we had the capability to assemble and organize material, verify statements, or just plain meet deadlines, I turned to Hunter. He unflinchingly took on the task, spent untold hours, and cleared my route to the goal line.”
