He studied creative writing at the University of Colorado, where he twice won the Jovanovic Award for poetry. In 2008, after years of travel, practice, and consideration, he returned home to the Rocky Mountains to make a documentary film, “Sage Country,” which immerses viewers in the magical hidden world of the Western sheep rancher. The film is scheduled for release in 2018.
