For anyone who cares, here are my story and some of my favorite links.

Tidal Inlet, Glacier Bay National Park

  • I live very happily in Gustavus, Alaska on the edge of a vast wilderness area.
  • My favorite recreation is to experience true wilderness solitude.
  • I see life's most important long-term issue as being biodiversity. All known life is related.
  • I co-founded Spirit Walker Expeditions and guided sea kayaking trips in Alaska's Inside Passage from 1987 to 2002.
  • I was a half-time computer specialist for Glacier Bay National Park from 1994 to 2018.
  • With two friends, I co-owned Corvid Computing, a full-service computer and communications consulting company, from 2007 through 2016.
  • I helped the City of Gustavus get its electronic communications underway.
  • As of 2018, I am semi-retired. My priority is to spend time in the wilderness and with family and friends. However, I am available for the right part-time or temporary work opportunity!
  • For their influential work on Inside Passage conservation issues, I support the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council.
  • I was chair of the Gustavus Land Legacy, working with The Nature Conservancy to successfully preserve what's best about Gustavus: living with the wildlife.
  • I believe in living simply so that others (of all species) may simply live. Try this fun test: The Earth Day Ecological Footprint Quiz. As Gustavus writer/photographer Kim Heacox wrote, "True wealth is not a matter of adding to our possessions, but of subtracting from the sum of our desires." I spoke on this matter at Gary Carlson and Ilana Guttman's wedding.
  • If a player sliding into home plate reached into his pocket and handed the umpire $1,000 before he made the call, what would we call that? A bribe. And if a lawyer handed a judge $1,000 before he issued a ruling, what do we call that? A bribe. But when a lobbyist or CEO sidles up to a member of Congress at a fundraiser or in a skybox and hands him a check for $1,000, what do we call that? A campaign contribution. Buy back our elected officials with clean money, clean elections.

  • I have other writings on Medium.
