I grew up in north central Minnesota. The home I grew up in was on the edge of a wildlife management area. From my childhood, I was exposed to experiences in nature. These experiences were part of the inspiration for my interest in environmental communication (the study of how we communicate about environmental issues, concerns, and needs in social movements, in the law, in the media, etc.). I enjoy camping, hiking, and fishing and exploring our national and state parks.
