Growing up in family of Scandinavian craftsment in rural Wisconsin taught Jens how to live with nature: from collecting wild foods, fishing and hunting, to working with natural materials, and surviving in the harshest conditions. These skills have been honed with Maine Guide Training, American Canoe Association certifications, and years of experience.
Jens' international travels began at the age 11 when his parents let him travel to Denmark by himself. He has since hitch-hiked across Europe multiple times and moved through virtually every type of ecosystem on 3 continents.
Jens specializes in experiential learning. Students get their hands dirty literally and figuratively. Decades of research and Jens' own experience have found that this type of learning is the most powerful and lasting.
