For over a decade, I have made a home in Ray City, Georgia, located on a northern branch of the Withlacoochee River in the Greater Suwannee Watershed. Our town has a population of around 1000 people, with a quarter of families living in poverty. I am currently serving as a volunteer for the Ray City Community Library, an independent municipal facility, where I focus on historic preservation and study our specific community archival practices.
I infrequently publish my writing. Most recently, in 2021, I shared a completed poem from my ongoing devotional project based on the Gospel according to John, Devotion 18 at Ekstasis Magazine. In 2015, I explored ecological semiotics in the essay Pale Tradescantia at Dark Mountain.
