Michael got the itch to head west just before graduating from a small college in MN in 2009, and has been exploring the country this side of the Mississippi since. To that end, he spent one and a half years based out of Tucson, AZ working for the Southwest Conservation Corps. During his four seasons of service there, he maintained old trail, built new trail, planted good plants, removed bad plants, cut down trees, built staircases, picked up garbage, closed down roads, and – importantly – taught his crews how to play Cribbage.
So, after being reared in the “land-of-10,000-lakes” and spending lots of time working in the “land-of-nothing-even-resembling-a-lake”, he hopes to find some sort of middle ground in Oregon. Michael also has a background in Environmental Education and is always looking to learn from people and the world and to teach when he can. He is excited to spend the summer in the mountains and to get to know the northwest a bit more. He is also excited to play Cribbage.
