Madman in the Woods

My childhood was spent in endless exploration of a backyard held in common with the Unabomber---a serial killer obsessed with dismantling technological society. 

Join me on this journey as I delve into childhood memories of Ted, share my father's integral role in the capture of Kaczynski, and search for what it means to grow up next to a murderer. 



I'm Jamie Gehring!

I have been writing my braided memoir about growing up next to Ted Kaczynski for the last four years.  

If I'm not writing, I am looking for inspiration. I always find it in the outdoors, travel, and my beautiful family. 

I love writing to The Pines, Johnny Cash, and the Avett Brothers.  

Maybe we should be friends. 




To tell a tragic story, while unearthing the complexity of our connection to nature, and each other. 

In the midst of this, I hope I can inspire you to unplug, even for a short time, and remember the importance of what it means to feel both.
