A snippet about me:
I can confidently say that I am an average guy. Well, average American guy. I live in the midwest. I have a wife and two kids. I work a full-time job.
I run a small non-profit in addition to my full-time work. The non-profit aims to get frontline workers out into the backcountry through backpacking, camping, or fly-fishing. It is called Frontline Freedom. You can check it out here.
A part of what Frontline Freedom advocates is mental health. One of the ways we encourage our cohorts to stay mentally resilient is through creativity. Hence, the creation of this site.
