Brief Bio

Originally from Sweden and a Captain in the Army there for many years, life here has been a change. I have discovered that I love the mountains and many of the natural resources the Front Range and Black Hills holds and find the area beautiful. When I am not hunched over the books or staring at my computer, I enjoy history, philosophy, a good whodunnit, playing games, roller-blading, visiting National and State Parks or just relaxing on the mountain.
