I teach writing at College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri and write essays about gardening, agriculture, faith, and the Midwest. I write a newsletter with seasonal reports on my permaculture garden. Recently, I wrote about domestic exploration and the cultural place of ravines in the rural Midwest. Originally from Nebraska, I live outside Reeds Spring, Missouri, with my wife and our children.
