I am a Colorado-based writer, river runner, telemark skier, karate practitioner, fisherman, father, husband, walker, philosopher, loafer, and backroads scholar. Although not necessarily in that order.

My essays, features, and book reviews have appeared in a variety of national and regional newspapers and magazines.

Presently I am the news coordinator and magazine editor in the Marketing & Communications Department at Fort Lewis College, in Durango, Colorado. I also am the lead instructor with the Durango Karate Club.

I have authored three books about living and parenting in the modern American West:

"The Monkey Wrench Dad: Dispatches from the Backyard Frontline" (Raven's Eye Press, 2008)

"Why I'm Against It All: Rants and Reflections" (Raven's Eye Press, 2003)

"A Wilder Life: Essays from Home" (Kivaki Press, 1995).
