My name is Anthony Orttel. I moved up to Bemidji in the Fall of 2013 from the north metro (Minneapolis area). I graduated from Bemidji State University in the Summer of 2018. At BSU, I studied biology, geography, and mass communication. I was one of the founders of the Beaver Freeze Ice Fishing Tournament while employed with the Outdoor Program Center, and also guided climbing, hiking, and camping trips. In my free time, I enjoy reading, fishing, and traveling. I've been to 11 countries so far, and hope to get to 25 before I turn 30.
