I live in Cambridge, Idaho with my wife, Brittany spaniels, and tabby cat. I have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad for both business and pleasure. I’m an avid musician in my spare time, playing – among other things – the great Highland bagpipes. As a college professor I was a recognized authority on jazz music and American culture, and regularly played golf on the same course as Tiger Woods. I once ate an entire jar of salmon eggs on stage, and have published articles on sturgeon, trout, steelhead, water, pheasant, poison ivy, civil rights, online learning, big game poaching, and the very remote possibility of finding an absolutely perfect grain of sand. Now I teach high school English, don’t have a television, and can’t decide if I want to be cremated or buried. When I’ve shuffled off this mortal coil, that is.
