My late Grandpa Jack was born and raised on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (the U.P.). He grew up on the northern part of the peninsula, in a tiny town called Mohawk, bordered by the beautiful Lake Superior. As a young boy he loved fishing, and he passed down his love for the sport to his three sons.

The energy of Spring gives me a little extra hop in my step. Considering how much I commute all over the city for Unfold, I’ll take an energy boost any time I can get it! Most of the time I’m a nomadic yogi - walking from one client to the next with my backpack filled with my iPad, journal, and of course LUNCH.
