I am a communications professional and correspondent. My raison d'etre is to spread the remarkable stories of those individuals and organizations who simply cannot accept the world as it is; those on the vanguard of social justice who are reordering systems which previously suppressed and stymied. I served for 5 years with the Army's 82nd Airborne Division, during which time I deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq. Upon returning home I pursued a communications degree from the University of Colorado. After writing for Colorado's second largest and multiple Pulitzer-prize winning paper, I moved to Traverse City, MI. I briefly freelanced for several local publications, but always felt something was missing.
Currently, I serve as the Outreach Director for On the Ground, a remarkable international development NGO which supports sustainable community development in coffee farming regions across the world, and fosters connections between coffee roasters and producers. For more than a decade OTG has been partnering with farming communities and conscientious coffee companies to create change through a commodity near and dear to countless consumers around the world.
