The RedGage Traveling Showcase

Hi folks!  The RedGage Traveling Showcase is back to help you get to know some of your RedGage neighbors.  After jamming to some of Bob’s concert photography, I grabbed a baguette (for my bike basket, of course) and decided to head to the south.  Michigan is getting snow and I hate being cold.  Since my bike was slipping on the ice and I could use some tea, I decided to stay in the Midwest for another night.  There is nothing like a blanket and something good to read, so I went to knock on the door of a RedGage member who writes poetry.  I also hear Kevin likes Bob Dylan….

I just started my masters in communication and leadership at Gonzaga. I’ve climbed three mountains, all in Juneau, Alaska. I rode a two wheeler at three, bungie jumped by 10, I’m ambidextrous, incapable of whistling, snapping, and I love kids.
