I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.


  1. I write, novels, some tech; one story (still editing), is set in the late 16th century, Mexico, and has a parrot that belongs to an escaped Irish slave who turned pirate (with letter of marque from Spain). The parrot has a dirty mouth (for then, not now), repeating naughty things the pirate said in moments of passion. Favorites: “‘Allo, me lovely, a penny fer yet time, sweets.” “How be yer sister, me buck? Still working the Port Royal docks?” And so on. He says these things to anything that sits still long enough to cuddle up to. Turkeys, soldiers, a couple of ghosts, a priest, a horse, and a jaguar, for starters. No, he’s a parrot and it’s only sounds. At least until he finds his lady pirate parrot. Thanks for letting us know about ye olde speachify as them pirates day, me girl!
