My name is Dallan and I live in Chugiak, AK. I am a social studies teacher. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area in California but I have lived in Alaska for about 7 years total. My wife is from Eagle River, AK and we met while I was attending Brigham Young University in Provo. We moved to Eagle River after I finished my BA, left for graduate school and then moved back. We have lived in Eagle River or Chugiak the entire time but I have traveled around the state a bit. I have driven the haul road to Deadhorse and visited Nome, Fairbanks, the Kenai Peninsula and Valdez. I never imagined that I would live in Alaska. I actually really hate the cold but I have had a lot of amazing adventures here that I never would have experienced if I hadn’t moved here. I am excited to learn more about this beautiful state.
