Thomas Huhti is a born and bred "Cheesehead." He developed a serious case of anywhere-but-here at a young age, which took him to China during university. He stayed there, finding ways to flee graduate school, which ultimately led to a five-year stint traveling the globe and living out of a backpack.At a certain point, homesickness hit him like a hammer; he realized he bled Badger red and understood where "home" was. Trouble was, he didn't really know what that meant. After Moon bravely took him on, he thus began the four-year pilgrimage about the state (and to libraries), researching the first edition of Moon Wisconsin, mostly done as a labor of love and as a gift to his parents, worthy Badgers both. He still has itchy feet and continues to research and write guidebooks for countries throughout Asia.Thomas lives in Madison, WI, with his co-pilot Yuki and navigator Bobo.
