Why did you become a member of the NAEC? Because Alaska is truly the Last Frontier and I don't want humans to think it's OK to spoil that with our desire for progress. Growth is natural and this is one of our last chances to do it right. I feel the Northern Center reminds us of that in a constructive way and keeps us honest. The Great Land is precious and thank you NAEC for leading the charge in helping preserve it!
When I travel, I always bring my: Bose sound reduction headphones w/nature sounds music, sunglasses, camera and a toothbrush.
What 3 things can always be found in your refrigerator? Energy foods: Chicken, spinach and beer.
What are your special talents? Building campfires, accounting, color balancing.
