Born in Alaska and raised in Oregon, the result of a hippie and a redneck in love. I started hiking with the Boy Scouts (only lasted till Heart) and I've been fishing all my life. From the time i got behind the wheel, I started exploring both urban rural areas. I've lived up and down the west coast and spent 2 years in Australia and a year in Japan (with a few trips to 3rd world spots.......whole load of stories there). My first daughter was born in February, which is a crazy adventure for me and my lovely misses.
