What first brought you to live in Alaska:
1. How has Alaska captured your heart or turned you off?
EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING. THE WILDLIFE, THE PEOPLE, THE CLEAR AIR, THE CLEAR SKY, THE EXCITEMENT, THE BEAUTY, THE COLORS, THE FLAVORS. IT ALL CALLS TO ME.
2. Describe just one of your most favorite “Best Day” or “Most memorable experiences” in Alaska.
I’VE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO DO A LOT OF EXCITING, THRILLING THINGS: TRAVEL EXOTIC PLACES IN THE STATE; SEE POLAR BEARS, SEE NORTHERN LIGHTS. BUT I THINK I LOVE BEING AT HOME WITH EAGLES VISITING AND MY DOGS IN THE YARD PLAYING WITH ME AND MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ALL AROUND.
3. What in Life do you know for sure?
I KNOW PLACE MATTERS VERY MUCH TO ME, AND I THINK PEOPLE; THAT IT’S IMPORTANT TO HAVE GOOD FRIENDS, GOOD FAMILY.
