I’m a journalist and non-fiction writer in Montana; and I work as a WordPress developer for clients in Montana and around the world.
For ten years, I wrote pieces called State of the Arts Tech Talk for the Montana Arts Council. My 2008-2011 archived Missoulian columns include my 225-odd Sunday Tech columns and some InBusinessMonthly articles.
I’m active in the arts and humanities in Montana, and served as vice-chair of the Montana Cultural and Aesthetic Trust from 2006 to 2013. I’ve received grants from the Montana Arts Council, including an individual fellowship in Photography; from Humanities Montana for writing and research; from Ucross Foundation for a writer’s residency; and a Charles Redd Center for Western Studies Independent Scholar grant.
I engineered and produced a set of CDs titled Eat Stone and Go On: The Recorded Poetry of Richard Hugo, funded by Humanities Montana and individuals. The CDs were distributed free to public libraries and schools around the state of Montana.
I’m a faculty affiliate in the University of Montana-Missoula’s Department of English and have taught composition and introductory literature classes. I also taught an Introductory Information Technology class in the Department of Computer Science. I taught creative writing in the Wilderness and Civilization Program in the Department of Forestry at UM, and I’ve taught photography in high schools through the Montana Art Council.
