Director's Biography

I was born in Corvallis, Oregon to a logging family seasoned in the outdoors. At an early age I moved to Alaska, where I was raised near Juneau. Immersing himself in that challenging environ, I eventually took up aviation and focused my career in that direction for the next 3 decades, eventually thrown into the construction of the Alaska Pipeline as manager of a fleet of helicopters, tasked with building out the mountain network vital to the project. Working and flying in those extremes pushed he and his colleagues to the edge on many occasions, teaching life lessons that only Alaska and the mountains can. I was always fascinated with photography, attested by the photo albums he collected based on the experiences he witnessed and documented along the way. Holding multiple patents in wireless, I moved from high-tech then to writing (wrote 4 books) and now film, seeing that the current generation would rather watch than read, so here I am!

Director's Statement

This short is my humble attempt to share the romance and grandeur of the Alaska Range and Mt. McKinley with the viewer from the air. Made while we were shooting the Alaska Long Hunters documentary. Enjoy!
