His taste for the wild has taken him to the upper Amazon, Patagonia, Madagascar, and mountain biking across Tibet. Largely unemployable, he works on an ‘as tolerated’ basis, mostly dealing with equines and compost. His only professional writing experience came from a brief employment with the Roaring Fork Weekly Journal writing a column called “Kiss My Ass.”
