Fun Facts

What keeps you motivated?
Trying to make things better for those around me. Helping people solve a problem and make decisions that are best for them.
Favorite room in the house?
My bedroom/office/library. I read myself to sleep nearly every night, and I derive a great deal of comfort by being surrounded by books I either have read or will be reading. Books and their content become a part of your memories and add quality and diversity to you life.
You have the afternoon to get away - what are you doing?
Very likely in my car and road-tripping enjoy the beauty of Montana.
Favorite place to eat?
Willow Creek Cafe and Saloon located just South of Three Forks in the tiny town of Willow Creek. The place is warm and welcoming and the food is terrific.
Where did you grow up?
I was raised on the reservation in Lapwai, Idaho. I have tried very hard not to grow up. The curiosity of children fascinates me, and I have tried not to lose that desire to observe and understand the world and people around me. To often the adult world requires that we render judgement and draw conclusions without being open to the other persons situation. I believe more listening and more non-judgmental curiosity (child like) can go a long way to improving life.
What would you like to do more of?
Travel Montana and the USA and experience the full diversity of the country to try to better understand where we have been and where we may be going. Understanding what we were and what we have become is an extremely rewarding pursuit.
