There are only three people in the world willing to travel this country while living in a minivan with me. These three are the most important humans in my life.


Growing up on a farm in the middle-of-nowhere South Dakota meant that I learned how to live in a world surrounded by forests, ponds, mud, wild animals, bugs, snow, hot summers, and daily exploration of Earth’s most exciting surprises.

In my early 20’s I traveled all over America to climb and backpack in some of the most beautiful environments that I could imagine.

With the arrival of my children I’ve come to appreciate our local ecology and our daily adventures into the wild. We focus on foraging, mycology, and entomophagy. My oldest son has an insatiable curiosity for everything that is nature and nothing in this world makes me happier than hanging with my two boys outdoors.


Do you want to see my wildest creations?


I am obsessed with books especially topics of anthropology, dark science, human behavior, and health. “I cannot remember the books I have read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so they have made me.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson


No other hobby has stuck with me so intensely as cycling. I have lived car free, ridden in every imaginable weather, worked at a bike shop, raced road and cyclocross, enjoyed many road group rides and mtb friends, toured, bikepacked, custom built all of my own bicycles, AND taught my son how to shred.


These days it seems like everyone is a photographer. However, I bring a wild perspective that can only be attained through obsessive amounts of being in nature. See the world through my eyes:


With the arrival of my first son I realized I could no longer rely on my youthful metabolism and active freedom to stay in shape. I became obsessed.
