Mick Dodge is also known by the nickname “Barefoot Sensei” because he decided to walk barefoot in the forest. This man-made decision to abandon the complexity of modern living and this is what led to his appearance on the National Geographic Channel show known as The Legend of Mick Dodge.

Biography and Early Life

Mick Dodge came to existence on the 29th of August in 1951 in the Olympic Peninsula which is found in the state of Washington in the United States of America. This makes him American by birth, but there is no information of his ethnicity. He is the son of Ronald L. Dodge who used to work in the Marine. It seems he finds it necessary to talk about his father only as he was the one who influenced the kind of life he has today.

For this reason, there is no information of his mother or even siblings if he has any. He was raised by his grandparents and as a small boy, they used to go for adventures into the natural forest. This is the reason why he is very much in love with the forest to date.

Age, Height, Weight & Body Measurement

Though, he is 5′ 4″ in feet and inches and 165 cm in Centimetres tall, he weighs about 150 lbs in Pound and 68kg in Kilograms.


It would be normal to assume that this man who is so sensational about the forest didn’t see the inside of a class. However, that is not true at all. He attended Kubasaki High School which is located in Okinawa, Japan. His father’s occupation as a Marine made it possible for Mick to travel and get exposure to different parts of the world.

He loved what his fathers did and therefore, after graduating from high school, he didn’t join any college but went straight to join US Marines. He served them for six good years then decided to live a normal life and this is where he found a job in an auto repair shop.

Personal Life: Dating, Girlfriends, Wife, Kids

After working in the auto repair shop for some time, he got bored with living a normal life and this is where the “barefoot Sensei” started. It is not clear whether he also decided to remain single for all his life or he has decided to keep his personal life away from the public, but he is assumed to be single to date. Since he decided to live an exceptional lifestyle it might also be that he didn’t find a woman who was courageous enough to stand the kind of life he lives today.

Is Mick Dodge Gay?

As mentioned above, there is nothing known about Mick Dodge’s personal and dating life. For this reason, we cannot assume that he is gay without substantial evidence to back our claim. Therefore, we will assume he is straight for now until otherwise proven.

Professional Career

His decision to leave Washington and relocate to the rainforest was made in 1992. Mick’s lifestyle makes him blend well with Mother Nature since he spent 20 good years in the forest before National Geographic Network discovered him. This was a very monumental discovery to the network as it enabled them to make a documentary that showcased the life of an intriguing man. This show was famously known as “The Legend of Mick Dodge”.

The first episode was aired on January 7th, 2014, and was well-received worldwide. It had a total of twenty episodes and ran for two seasons. The creative difference between the network and Mick occurred and therefore, they stopped airing the show.


Mick might have not received any awards and nominations in his life, but the decision he made has left many in shock. He also managed to have his own TV show which is a big dream for many.

  1. I wish I had the guts to do what he’s done. Where did he do his basic training as a Marine? My dad was also a Marine and he was about his age. I just wonder if maybe he knew him. His name was Orville Sinkhorn, nickname Poodle.
