Born in Alaska, being outdoors hunting, fishing was a part of life at an early age and cemented a passion for the great outdoors and all it had to offer. I have always enjoyed camping and hiking and later in life really enjoy the whole aspect of bushcraft and practicing wilderness survival skills. I‘am an avid knife collector and user. When I'm not at work, I'm in the woods, when my wife gives me permission (just kidding!).
Tell us about one of your most memorable experiences outdoors.
Hiking California Section K of the Pacific Crest Trail was about the best time I have ever had outdoors. 68 miles over 4 days of the prettiest country I had ever seen and only 50 miles from home, even better.
You’re headed outdoors for the weekend but can only bring a rifle, an axe or a knife. Which one do you choose and why?
Knife hands down because Im a knife-a-holic.
What is something you learned that could only be learned while being in the great outdoors?
To respect mother nature and the elements. The weather in the mountains can sneak up and get you if you’re not prepared.
