About the Author

He was raised in Fairfield, Ohio, then moved to Boulder, Colorado in 2003. For twelve years he backpacked extensively through the mountains and deserts of the American West. Along the way he worked as a bicycle mechanic, Uber driver, and a whole slew of conventional and unconventional jobs to fund his travels and stay on the wilderness path. Recording his journeys with pen and notebook, he writes primarily about our spiritual connection to nature.
