I love speaking with inspiring people who do good works. I love hearing about cool, impactful community programs. I love talking about and eating native food. I love how our lifestyles intertwine long-held values with the outdoors, sometimes adventure, and always with community. And I want to write.
Why write? Writing is a gift I simply discovered and nurtured. It’s nothing I ever asked for, but I enjoy it and am very grateful. I want this gift to be used to share truth from the small communities we call home.
I have chosen to return and make my home in Unalakleet, the town I grew up in. I love it and write about it a lot. I’d love to hear what’s happening in your community. Talk to me.
