Biography

Seth Barnes, 37, was raised in a small Gulf Coast town in Alabama. He went to school at Mississippi State University, where he earned a degree in Chemical Engineering. After working for private industry and the federal government, he traded the suit and tie in for much more comfortable and warmer clothes. Moving to Alaska in 2010, Seth quickly fell in love with dog mushing. He has hardly been out of Alaska since. Living and training with his companions year round he moves closer to his dream. Being raised with animals of all kinds instilled him with a love and respect for animals from a very young age, especially dogs. Compared to the Washington DC beltway, the only traffic jams he encounters now are at the start of dog races. Seth says, “The best thing about dog racing is the open spaces, the beauty of the land, and spending your time with some of the best, truly amazing, professional athletes in the world.”
