About Me


Live simply, play outside and cover as much ground as possible

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and continue to call the region my home. I have a degree in Environmental Science from the University of Idaho and am an avid outdoorsman, adventurer, and environmental activist. I have spent the last several years as a community organizer working on environmental/climate change and LGBT rights issues. More recently I was working as a park ranger in Nevada at Wild Horse State Recreation Area.

"You can walk alongside your life, going from point to point, living out your little time-line. Or you can plunge right in, immerse yourself." - Kathleen Deen Moore

"Magic is an experience. It's the experience of finding oneself alive inside a world that is itself alive. It is the experience of contact and communication between oneself and something that is profoundly different from oneself: a swallow, a frog, a spider weaving a web." - David Abram
