Thanks for visiting my online portfolio. I’m a folklorist, writer, radio producer, oral historian, and community organizer in central Arkansas.
Most of my work takes place at intersection of regional traditions and community action, exploring concepts of oral history, social justice, cultural sustainability, grassroots organizing, inter-generational connections, and how storytelling and concepts of place inform who we are and who we want to become. I edit a site called the Boiled Down Juice and I’m the director of the McElroy House: Organization for Folklife, Oral History, and Community Action.
I also write about parenting, grief, gardening, baked goods, belief, and, for lack of a better phrase, the art of everyday. Take a look around to find samples of my writing and radio production.
