Once upon a time I moved away from Minnesota because I thought it was more cool to be almost anywhere else. Then I moved back and decided I never wanted to move away again. Only through moving back, I discovered how beautiful this state is and cool the people in it are. Minnesota shouldn't  be considered a flyover state with our breathtaking natural resources, artists, makers and incredible food scene.

I really like not being behind a computer.  I love outdoor adventures, people who read print books, hotdishes, airports,  disregard of gender norms, and 80s movies and tv shows.

I've worked/wrote/photographed for Saint Cloud State's University Chronicle, The Minnesota Project, Saint Paul Public Schools Foundation, TC Daily Planet, Conservation Corps Minnesota & Iowa, Saint Paul Public Schools and myself.
