They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s some visual verbiage to wade through. And for those of you who insist that a bio contain something more substantial:

I grew up on the East Coast, graduated from Ithaca College back in 1982 and moved west to Montana in 1990.

I’ve done my fair share of fishing, hunting, guiding and writing over the years.

Given the choice, I prefer country landscapes to city life, longbows to rifles, whitetails to mule deer, pickups to sports cars, moving water to still, and wild trout to everything else that swims under the sun.

In case it isn't obvious, I’m partial to the forests, mountains and rivers of western Montana, and to golden retrievers, and to boys named Kian and gals named Molly.
