i live with my partner on Vancouver Island, where we're nurturing a creative practice together, learning to steward our surrounding ecosystem, taking care of our wellbeing, & sharing family stories and traditions with one another.

during my first year on the island, i lived alone, struggled to make connections, and stopped engaging with the web. now i'm in a supportive relationship, have developed local bonds, and am finding meaningful ways to connect & be online.

in the process, i'm exploring mortality, heritage, & contentment through creative learning & introspection, and cultivating a more balanced lifestyle after wrestling with depression,
anxiety, and illness for many years.
