About me

Gender MALE
Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Freelance writer
Location Billings, Montana, United States
Introduction I'm married to my special lady friend and I have three daughters, 13, 11 and 7. Becky is a beauty who refuses to the play the part of the beauty queen. I think it's 'cause she's completely grounded, but mostly it's because her beauty isn't flash and fad, it's classic and eternal -- you know, in a Grace Kelly-Ingrid Bergman sort of way. My girls are crazy. And hilarious. And crazy. I grew up in Colorado, moved to Utah when I was a junior in high school and served a mission in Mexico. Yes, that means I'm Mormon. I got into journalism because I like writing and I like seeing my name in print. But, because I'm not writing for the New York Times or something, the pay stinks.
Interests Rough housing with my girls, camping, hiking, skiing, reading, watching movies, staying up late, sleeping in, playing the guitar, listening to music
