... among other things, like storytelling and my dog, Huck Finn. I was born in Washington D.C. grew up as a beach baby in the lovely Clearwater, Florida.
I’m passionate about a lot of things – writing, photography, cooking, climbing. But mainly when it’s shared experiences I tend to enjoy sharing space and narrative with my community.
In 2012 I lost a lot. I lost my father, my job, and my health began to decline. I knew that things needed to change. I began a journey west to “do the work” that is necessary, in my opinion, for everyone. With over 10 years of peer-mentorship experience, years of living alternatively in and out of community, and the past four years as a mentor and scaffolder, I can help you facilitate the things that are keeping you living below the line and stuck.
Professionally, I made my way through running summer camp and outdoor education programs. As a writer and photographer, I constantly seek to understand the stories that drive our day-to-day. And through mentoring and training staff, coaching youth and adults, and becoming a trained ACCT facilitator, I’ve seen a lot of transformation. These moments are the most exciting for me: when someone feels an internal shift and understands their own power to change their worldview.
As an introvert (INTJ), I used to seek out the quietude. While hiking giant peaks in pristine wilderness is still my cup of java, my secondary mode is external, expressive and creative. I find value in leading people toward great things.
Everyone has a story. It simply depends how you wish to tell it. Take a look at some of the ways I tell my stories, and I’m excited to help you tell yours.
