Hello and thank you for stopping by my Patreon page!

Are you to busy with work, family and life in general
to pursue the adventures and hobbies you enjoy
as much as you'd like?

Virtually escape with me and my "Backcast Life" not-for-profit passion project. We'll share adventures and hobbies like backcountry hikes, fly fishing, camping, brewing beer, whitewater rafting and more through a series of short movies and photographs while support some worthy charities.

I'm Mike. Father of two amazing boys, soccer coach, and currently a stay at home dad after spending many years delivering large scale IT projects for Big X consultancies and government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and NOAA. I realized I hadn't seen my four year old son in four years and he had just been diagnosed with Autism. I decided it was time to reconnect with my family and care for my special needs child. (Who is the most loving and funny little guy you'll ever meet.)

I may return to the corporate life eventually. Although, I've never felt more content, at peace and connected than when I've been on some outdoor adventure, caring for my children, coaching youth soccer or giving back to my local school or the charities I love. I'd like to capture and share those adventures with you a lot more.

Thank you for your consideration. Please join me and support me and my family.

Decide, do and upload the next outdoor adventure/hobby content.  Might I brew the next beer, tie a fly, snowshoe somewhere in the cascades, freeze my toes doing some overnight camping???
