I'm a Wisconsin homegrown cheesehead who cheers too loudly for the Packers and grew up loving chilly mornings in a deer stand up nort' or a hot summer's day on the lake. Since I was little I knew I wanted to be a writer, so after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's journalism program, I wrote for small but mighty newspapers in western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. I savored the interviews with rural folks who had rich stories waiting to be told. I finally followed my dream of living in Montana in January 2021 and now I get to work alongside media gurus who love storytelling as much as I do. I spend my weekends hiking or camping in the mountains and looking for a sweet spot to nap.
