The SignOut Co Podcast


Daniel Thornton had his earliest adventures in Katy — back in the days when Katy was much smaller and rice fields seemed to stretch to the horizon. His family’s home at the edge of town was the perfect base camp for boyhood exploration. This is the context in which Daniel cultivated a heart for adventure.

Daniel enjoyed athletics throughout his school years. Beyond school sports, Daniel continued to look for ways to engage with the great outdoors. As an adult, he refuses to allow busyness to crowd adventure out of his life. Instead, he continues to look for ways to get outdoors with family and friends.


Several years after graduating from college, Daniel reunited with Russ Johnston, an old school friend, who is a kindred spirit in regard to adventuring. Together, Daniel and Russ co-founded The SignOut Company. “Sign out,” Daniel explains, “is a term that usually signifies the end of something. The end of one thing is always the opportunity to start something else.”

SignOut Co. is the perfect company name for two guys who love adventure. Their brand “is about telling a new story, pursuing a new direction, chasing a passion.” Their website features cool outdoor clothing. One of the best things they do is donate a portion of their proceeds to Elijah Rising, an organization committed to battling human trafficking.

Daniel is the host of the SignOut Podcast, a platform designed to interview individuals who are pursuing their passion. I am a subscriber to Daniel’s podcast and enjoy listening to cool stories shared by folks who live adventurously. You can listen to the SignOut Podcast directly from their website or subscribe to it on iTunes, Stitcher, Podbean, or Google.

Daniel recently invited me to share my story on the SignOut Podcast. As someone who shares Daniel’s heart for adventure, it was a fun opportunity to answer questions about where my adventures have taken me. I hope that you will carve out some time to listen to this interview entitled Omar Garcia | A Life of Adventure.

Please take a moment to visit the SignOut Co online and look at their merchandise. And remember that anything you buy will also help in the fight against human trafficking in the greater Houston area.

The late naturalist John Muir said, “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” That’s good advice. I encourage you to SignOut, find a dirt path, and pursue adventure.
