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.

    • That’s Chappelle’s genius: he is able to use comedy to get the the essential core of something true. And comedy is a form of storytelling quite conducive to that. I think Jesus’ parables did a similar thing: he used stories to illustrate something profoundly true. Whether comedy or parables, the use of story can cut through the intellectualizing of debate…..Sort of makes me wonder what kind of a story can cut through the bullshit and help conservative folks realize the kind of suffering they are causing kids at the border…..

      • I don’t use facebook, but my dad does. He posted a picture of Superman (the one from when he was a kid) with a caption describing an alien kid that came to America and wound up defending Truth, Justice, and the American Way.
