Kirk lives in Southeast Alaska and operates a family commercial salmon fishing business, Taku Renewable Resources, during the summer. He has spent his 41 years working and playing in, on and around the North Pacific ocean as a captain, researcher, expedition leader and water enthusiast. When he is not working on boats up and down the Pacific Coast, he spends his time working on sustainable energy and economic development strategies for rural communities. He and his wife, Heather, explore the cost recovery and waste management of available bio-mass resources as economically viable energy alternatives for Southeast Alaska. Kirk graduated from UC Santa Cruz and studied environmental physiology and marine biology. He is also an accomplished All-American swimmer, water polo player and surfer. When not fishing or working, Kirk loves to smoke sockeye salmon and feed it to his two border collies, Choco and Bella.
