An Indigenous educator, writer and editor, I am a Tekarihoken Turtle Clan Mohawk born and raised at Tyendinaga.
I spend all my time working with the Aboriginal Access to Engineering initiative at Queen’s University, the digital properties of Out & About Nashville newspaper, and I’m a newly minted Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from the Institute of American Indian Arts.
On the side, I’m captivated by the business of artistry: radio airplay charts, TV ratings, all those things that happen behind the scenes; and I may spend a bit too much time trying to identify that line where artistry ends and business begins. Sonically, country music from the 1980’s is my life.
Personally, I owe my highest gratitude to my mom and my brother who have each (sometimes unwittingly) assisted in my continuing cultural and historical education, connecting our rich past to our limitless future. And for being all ’round great folks.
This site began as part of my coursework in the Social Media post-graduate certificate program at Seneca College, where I graduated in May 2014.
