Clint feels immensely fortunate to have been with Maria’s Bookshop—putting good books into the hands of great customers—for over 15 years. In previous lives he has been an Editorial Cartoonist, a National Park Ranger, a vintage Westfalia vagabond, and one of NASA’s most decorated astronauts. Hmmm…he keeps us laughing anyway.
Inspired by his geographer father, Clint has been a life-long advocate for wild creatures and wild places, and loves spending his free time wandering with his dog in the deserts and mountains of Utah and Colorado. His areas of particular interest in the bookshop include history, travel & adventure, nature writing, and animals, with a good fiction title now and then just to astonish his colleagues.
