I spent a good deal of time with people from Occupy L.A. I took out my video camera (i.e. my smartphone) and just started filming my friend Liberty. He was a good friend of mine, a thoughtful, kind, and articulate voice of the movement. I took this video a few months back and I finally had a bit of time to upload it.
Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy, as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountain Center. When not in McCarthy, you'll typically find me in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, writing and working with local activists. My primary writing project right now is a novel set in remote bush Alaska, of the magical realism genre wherein an earnest and independent young woman finds a mysterious radio belonging to her grandmother, a device that has paranormal bandwidth and a disturbing ability to mess with one's mental stability.
