I finally had the opportunity to write for the Montana Quarterly. It’s been a goal of mine this last year to make it into this stellar, regional publication. To read the article, you’ll have to pick up a copy of the Summer 2019 issue here.
Two weeks ago we premiered "A Blackfoot Challenge" at the International Wildlife Film Festival. As a Film Labs Fellow, I got to work along side a small group of scientists and communicators to produce a short film in less than a week. That was a crazy turnaround and made for an epic challenge!
A huge thanks to Jake Gable, Lisa Tossey, and Anne Roth for putting so much of yourselves into this project. We couldn't have pulled the film off without amazing help from Colin Ruggiero, USFWS Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, and Blackfoot Challenge and we're all thankful for the opportunity.
In the Shields Valley of Montana, tucked up against the North Bridger Mountains amid a wild expanse of grass and sagebrush, North Bridger Bison is a family-run bison ranch that provides healthy, delicious, environmentally friendly, humanely field-harvested bison meat.
This spring I had a chance to collaborate with the Skoglunds to produce this branded video.

Shot during the 2018-2019 winter season while guiding through Yellowstone Expeditions. They provide four to eight day cross country ski trips from their backcountry yurt camp in Canyon Village. Booking a trip is a great way to experience the silence and solitude of Yellowstone National Park in winter.

Carter County, Montana is home to around 1,200 folks spread out across nearly 3,500 square miles. Yet, Melissa DiNino and I were able to track down the county's newest residents - our elusive friends, Jenna and her husband Ian. They're newly appointed ranch managers and have their hands full with calving season just around the corner.
With a break in the recent round of winter storms, we hitched along for a ride as Jenna went about the daily chores and broke in a new pair of Tecovas.

“Fall leaves drift across the doubletrack and the sound of the creek trickles through the low country. Raspberry canes line the edge of the forest while frost shimmers in the grass and collects in yesterday’s footprints. Solitude, just a dozen miles south of Bozeman.”

“Surrounded by friends, I closed my front door on July 10, 2017, laced up my lugged shoes, and jogged away from my home in Bozeman, south toward the Gallatin Range, Yellowstone National Park, and eventually 200 more miles to Red Lodge, Montana: an immense swath of the 20-million-acre Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.”
