I am an enrolled Cherokee Nation tribal citizen, and I'm passionate about Native American and Indigenous environmental issues generally and Cherokee eco-cultural revitalization specifically. In my free time, I like to garden and otherwise spend time outdoors with my family. I live in Longmont, Colorado, on the ancestral homelands of the Cheyenne, Arapaho, and Ute nations.
