Roots in Northern Minnesota.

Chapter 1: As the son of two park rangers, I built a lot of forts as a kid. I went on to guide whitewater trips in the Canadian Arctic.

Chapter 2: After college I moved to SF, got an MBA, worked for a software giant, and founded two startups. Then I jumped back to the outdoor world and launched a marketing program from scratch.

Chapter 3: I now live in a Tacoma with my dog Bea, wandering the West in search of good ramen and trails to run. I work as a freelancer producer, writer, and photographer.

Chapter 4: Currently scheming the next big thing.
