I grew up in northwest Montana. My parents instilled in me a love for the mountains, an appreciation for the seemingly small things in life, the value of family and the importance of a job well done. It takes very little to make me happy these days. The ability to move my body, a home with a warm bed, clean food, clean air, clean water and people who inspire me. I love pushing myself in different directions and learning new things. I’ve done a variety of things to put food on the table: Owned and operated a food truck, worked as a private and personal chef, managed multiple vacation rentals, installed telephone equipment, worked in rope access/industrial rigging, project managed and marketed web projects and most recently learning to fly a drone and assist with video production.
