I was born the son of a career diplomat and spent 12 of my first 13 years overseas—first Palermo, Sicily, then Vienna, Austria, and finally Thailand from 1962-67. My dad was the American consul in Udorn Thani, a forward CIA and special operations base for missions into Laos, and later on, into North Vietnam. I attended high school in the Washington DC area and graduated in 1977 from Colby College in Waterville, Maine, with a degree in English Literature. Though mostly raised in cities, I had always dreamed of living in a wilderness setting, and set out for Alaska in 1979. After an 800 mile canoe trip, I settled in a remote Eskimo village on the upper Kobuk River in northwest arctic Alaska, 200 miles off the road grid. I worked for a hunting guide, managed a trading post, and then became a schoolteacher to Inupiat Eskimo children in the local school. But my first love was always the seemingly limitless, wild country that surrounded me, and the creatures that roamed it. In 20 years of living in the region, I travelled tens of thousands of wilderness miles by skiff, canoe, on foot, skis, and snowmobile, often alone I’m a contributing editor to Alaska Magazine, and on USA Today’s board of editorial contributors. I currently live on a semi-remote homesite in Southeast Alaska with my wife, Sherrie, and our four dogs.
