Fight Ted Nugent with Sock'em Boppers
I was raised in the upper Midwest and love how that has shaped me well into adulthood. I've spent the last several years traveling and working throughout the Western U.S. but I always carry a bit of Minnesota with me wherever I happen to be living.
I've been a cook, salesman, bartender, machine operator, student, lumberjack, plumber, park ranger, dreamer, lover, and sympathizer. I've seen quite a bit, but not enough. Never enough.
I love cooking for people and brewing beer. I love adrenaline. Rock climbing is a passion and a hobby.
Contrary to persistent rumors I am not the Batman.
"Sooner or later, all our games turn into Calvinball."
"There is a woman stuck between my eyelids. I would tell her to get out if I could, but there is a woman stuck in my throat."
"Ale-colored sunshine and pale sky and whorls of cirrus so high they cast no shadow. Insects all business all the time. Quartz and chert and schist and chondrite iron scabs in granite. Very old land. Look around you. The horizon trembling, shapeless. We are all of us brothers."
"Tequila, scorpion honey, harsh dew of the doglands, essence of Aztec, crema de cacti; tequila, oily and thermal like the sun in solution; tequila, liquid geometry of passion; Tequila, the buzzard God who copulates in midair with the ascending souls of dying virgins; tequila, firebug in the house of good taste; O tequila, savage water of sorcery, what confusion and mischief your sly, rebellious drops do generate!"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
