What’s a place you love in the Midwest?

As a young boy, I fell in love with the North Woods of Wisconsin, Minnesota and the UP of Michigan. In particular, I find the Boundary Waters in Minnesota to be amongst the most magical places on earth!

What drives you to do this work?

Climate change is the existential crisis of our time. I am driven to do my part to push back against the proliferation of fossil fuels and protect the earth for future generations!
