Thanks for checking in!
My writing is based on 36 years in the catering business and a lifetime of outdoor experiences, competitions, and adventures.
I have a Land Surveying background and education, as well as a degree in Physical Education, with minors in Coaching, Adapted Physical Education, and Health Education. I taught high school for 2 years before life circumstances, mainly business and family, dictated that I devote my energies to my catering business.
In my 20's I was a gym owner and competetive Powerlifter, attaining triple bodyweight lifts in both the squat and deadlift.
I founded Divine Swine Catering with my business partner in 1982, and we remain active in this Twin Cities-based company. We specialize in BBQ, but serve a wide variety of other menus as well, for individual as well as organizational events. We cater around 600 events per year and serve over 100,000 people annually.
My current passions are mountain biking, cross country skiing, backpacking, woodworking, and writing.
I have one son who is a young adult, and he continues to amaze me with his intellect, sense of humor, and unique set of talents.

My Tibetan Terrier has taught me so many lessons; all by example.
