Alaska is hot stuff in the media. I get it — this is a special place! And there are a lot of “Outside” writers who do a good job of covering Alaska topics. But Alaska is so large, so diverse, and so remote that if you want to truly understand this enormous state, its people and its many cultures, you really need to live here.

My odometer is about to kick over to 29 years in state, and I love writing about all aspects of life here. Click the images below for a peek at some of my recently published work on Alaska:
