As a young man I left the relative comfort of my Minnesota roots in search of solace, residing twice in Montana and living for nearly a decade in a remote cabin in Oregon. As an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys mountain climbing, kayaking, and backpacking, I've traveled extensively throughout the American west, where activism, the environment, and politics converged into a way of life. Alcoholism counselor, carpenter, and ranch hand are but a few of the many occupations I have employed in an adventurous life.
Home again in Minnesota, writing, which had always been a childhood dream, seems to have taken center stage. Waterfall Dance is my debut novel.
