I am an Emmy nominated visual effects artist for television and feature film, creative writer, designer, engineer, renewable energy policy writer, photographer, musician, passionate animal lover with a yen for doggies and wolves, skate skier, biathlete, runner, hiker, traveler, buddhist in training, absolute nature lover, and holistic health maven! I have always had many interests, and a passion to pursue each of them!

My love for my dog Schatzi has opened a world of wonder, and so this book is a document of our journey.
