I started driving dogs in Nenana in 1976, learning many things the hard way until I met experienced racers who taught me how to finally be a dog driver. I started doing tours in 1980, and in 1985 started Sled Dog Adventures with a partner. I became the sole owner in 1997. I have driven teams in many areas in the state, full-time all winter since 1980. I am listed in the UAF Archives in the History of Dogmushing, and was featured in the News-Miner in January 2017. I am still learning and I have a deep respect for the amazing Alaska husky, and have raised some and owned many through the years. I now take in unwanted or retired race dogs who still love to take visitors into the beauty of nature.
