Formerly a page that examines my involvement in community. This page includes drafts of stories around urban Puget Sound. Some tackle real life issues. Others are simply playful. These stories are grouped according to the compilations they will eventually become part of.

POWDER-COATED RIMS, 4ONE ARIES AND ACRYLIC WINDOWS: A JOURNEY TOWARDS HOME

What does it mean personally to be here on Coast Salish lands? What does it mean for me to be colonized and to be a colonizer? In this collection, I grapple with these issues and more. Drawing from my life experiences in several areas across the Pacific—Samoa, Hawai’i and the Coast Salish—I write to build relationships and hopefully move towards healing and reconciliation.
