I'm an outdoor, travel, and conservation writer and photographer on a quest to explore the world, find the meaning of life, and avoid getting lost for more than two days at a time. I write, photograph, and capture video for a variety of publications and scientific and creative projects worldwide.
When I grow restive with the constraints of Western civilization, I abandon it. One winter that meant working as a skiing carnivore tracker in Northern Montana, living with my wife and two young boys in a remote homestead cabin. Years later we put a trailer-bike on a tandem mountain bike, the Teasdale Train, and wandered for months through the wilds with our boys and camp gear to Banff. Most recently, we pulled the kids from school and decamped for a year to the wilder corners of Central America. Someday I'll finish my book on that.
My spirited travel, adventure, and investigative stories earned me the Lowell Thomas 2016 Travel Writer of the Year award from the Society of American Travel Writers, considered the Pulitzer of travel writing. Other LT Awards include a 2012 Bronze Award for Travel Writer of the Year and plaques for best Investigative Reporting, Adventure Travel, and Environmental Travel stories of the year.
I'm also a veteran editor of articles and books. If the project is good, I still sometimes do that.
Thanks for stopping by.
