I’ve been involved in the martial arts since I was 16, ranging from Filipino to Aikido and currently BJJ.
My family and I have been involved in dog rescue for years on the Navajo Reservation.
I left college after two years in search of adventure in the Western wilderness.
I’ve had the great fortune of teaching survival courses for the military special operations community.
My favorite movies are The Snow Walker, Big Wednesday, Chasing Mavericks, and Ben Hur.
Before becoming a fulltime writer, I used to spend around 220 days a year living in the wilds, teaching bushcraft courses.
I once found mountain lion tracks in the sand next to my head on a weeklong primitive trek.
