About Kenn Macur

My name is Kenn. I’m 34 years old, a dad, an electrician, a writer, a photographer, an artist, an adventurer, a hiker, a camper, a soccer player (football for those of you anywhere else in the world), a natural history, physics, and psychology enthusiast. In short, I’m a geek, I’m a dork, I’m a nerd, and, now, I’m a pole dancer too! I love it! If you’re looking for me, best look up. I’m probably hanging upside down from something, thumbing my nose at gravity.

Now, before you get the wrong idea—or perhaps slightly after you get the wrong idea but before it settles in—that girl, Darci, is my best friend and a pole dance instructor in northern Minnesota. We’d been talking about pole and dance and sharing videos we found online for a long...
