I once found mountain lion tracks in the sand next to my head on a weeklong primitive trek.
I thought of becoming a professional storyteller and traveling the circuit but find writing better suits me.
I like the desert and triple-digit heat because of a particularly grueling ordeal in Idaho.
My favorite movies are The Snow Walker, Big Wednesday, Chasing Mavericks, and Ben Hur.
If I could travel back in time it would be to the 1870s in Arizona.
My favorite place in the country is the Four-Corners region, particularly Bluff, Durango, and Chama.
I’ve been involved in the martial arts since I was 16, ranging from Filipino to Aikido and currently BJJ.
