Santa Barbara, Ca

I'm a full-time rambler and contract designer with as many skill sets in my quiver as there are plane tickets in my passbook. I've worked in ornamental iron, jigsaw puzzle design, bookmaking, glass engraving, and a variety of other mediums. I'm currently living out of a backpack as I trek my way around the world.


The Running of the Reindeer (Slideshow)

Don't worry: reindeer are herbivores

Don't worry: reindeer are herbivores

Sourdough Alaskans have a longstanding tradition of trying to make the rest of the world look like teat-suckling babies, and in an effort to not be outdone by the Basques in Pamplona with their famous Running of the Bulls event in July, they created a new event that celebrates homegrown hardiness and local wildlife.

In case you haven’t heard, Alaska has had a shortage of angry bulls since the Laurentian rotation and the breakup of Pangea. As a result, Fur Rendezvous organizers in Anchorage have taken it upon themselves to reinvent Spain’s classic event and give it an original arctic twist.

The Running of the Reindeer has been a Fur Rendezvous highlight for the past five years, and it shows no sign of letting up: an estimated 15,000 people clogged 4th Avenue for the event, and there’s already a countdown ticker for next year’s frenzy.
