writer. traveler. teacher. outdoors enthusiast.

I am an independent writer, having been a newspaper columnist, freelance journalist, and author.  Various writings have appeared in outdoor recreation and travel magazines, practitioner’s journals, and political zines.  Crossing borders is one of my favorite things to do, right alongside riding bikes.  In recent years, I’ve taken to understanding the ocean through body surfing and snorkeling, building upon an appreciation that began on long-ago summer days of youth.  I also teach university classes related to environmental policy, food security, and international “development.”

In late 2015, I self-published two books (below).  Above, you can enter the Blog for current postings.  Thank you for visiting my site.  Best–Jim
