Men of MenScience: Bill "Tuna" Fontana

To kick off the new Men of MenScience series, we're spotlighting skier/windsurfer Bill "Tuna" Fontana. At 61 years old, Tuna's year is spent between two locations most men would give their left arms to even visit: Aspen and Maui, Hawaii.

For half of the year, Tuna is a ski instructor at an Aspen ski school. He holds master's degrees in Education and Mental Health Counseling, and jokes that it was to maintain his own mental health that he moved to Aspen from Pennsylvania in 1971. His day there consists of waking up at 6:00 AM, doing yoga and eating a light breakfast, then heading up the hill to his job, where he greets his first students at 9:00. Often after skiing or teaching during the day, he can be found cross-country ski-skating by night, and he's well-known for tirelessly skiing every single one of the 180 days he's there, never missing a day. He's commited to the Aspen community and has volunteered with the Aspen School for the Deaf.

For the second half of his year, Tuna is an accomplished windsurfer in Maui. After visiting Santa Barbara 23 years ago, Tuna got hooked on the sport and has been pursuing it ever since. He's won the Hawaii State Windsurf Championship and continues to be a player in the windsurfing community.

Hard work and a healthy lifestyle have given Tuna an opportunity to live out his dreams in a way most men will never experience, and he appreciates every minute.

"I have a job people would love to do as a vacation!" he says.
