I have been a KBOO member for nearly ten years and began volunteering with John Talley, host of "Indian World" in 2005 as an intern completing my interdisciplinary studies bachelors degree from Marylhurst University. I am fortunate to be able to consult with John as a radio mentor, friend and Mohawk elder. I am a Cherokee Nation of Ok enrolled tribal member and I have some Osage and Choctaw in my line. Although I grew up in Ok I have been in the Portland area for long time. I have ties with NAYA, NICWA, NARA and PPS Indian Education project and other Native American groups. My interest in producing this show is to connect folks in the Portland and surrounding area for a stronger Native American Community.

Currently I co-host Hypnophobia Radio, on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month from 3-6am. I also teach audio classes to new volunteers.
