Ted Baran

Ted moved to Alaska at the age of 17 to attend the University of Alaska Fairbanks where he earned a BBA in finance in 1994 and his MBA in 1996. He has lived in Anchorage for over 20 years and started his career as a commercial banker before moving into commercial insurance and bonding. In his free time, he spends a considerable amount of time in the Copper River region, hiking, hunting, fishing, and dipnetting. Ted has been dipnetting in Chitina for 20 years and hopes he has another 20 years or more left in him.
