Schwarm has been interested in controlled agricultural burns since growing up on a farm in Kansas.
“There’s a lot more to fire than what it is,” Schwarm said. “It’s a love-hate relationship. It heats our homes, but also burns down our homes. I am interested in its beauty more than its devastation.”
