Enrolled (LCO) Ojibwe poet in Las Vegas who dabbles in prose & short fiction.

When I’m not writing, I’m reading or watching films.

I live with Polycystic Kidney Disease, Epilepsy, Neuropathy, Anxiety, Reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder (my body & brain cannot handle warm weather), & PTSD, but do my best to navigate this weird world alongside my illnesses.
