I am currently
I am a husband and father to two beautiful children, ages 10 and 5. I am also a freelance writer and avid traveler. My family and I love to camp and fish and hike. Basically, we enjoy being together outdoors in the beautiful area we call home. Occasionally, however, I travel alone, leaving home for short durations of time in order to research and experience new things, and to ultimately write about them. For the purposes of this account, traveling solo is the intention.
I am interested in learning the ins and outs of coffee farming, from root to harvest, processing and production. I am currently researching climate change and its affects on coffee. As the second largest producer of coffee in the world, and with its great biological and geographic diversity, Colombia seems like the perfect location to further that research. I am happy to get soil under my fingernails and work hard. I also want to improve my Spanish speaking skills. I would like one day to be fluent.
I have worked on water-quality projects in both Punjab, India, and the Utah portion of the Navajo Nation. I maintain a sizable vegetable garden at home and also a small vineyard, from which I make my own wine.
