About Me


practicing compassion, resilience, integrity.


Grew up in the magical land of Minnesota, where the clouds are big and wild and powerful. Spent some years in California, New York, Alaska doing different things, and traveled around a bit. Now I'm back in Minnesota and working up in the Boundary Waters.

I'm open-minded and practicing effective communication in my life.
