This Spring, I was asked to mentor a grade eight student who was attending the Waldorf School in Duncan.

The Beau Dick: Revolutionary Spirit book review I wrote was published in the 2019 issue of Portal magazine. Even though Beau Dick passed away in 2017, he’s still someone I look up to and admire, both as a visionary artist and as an activist.

“Shanon Sinn – The Haunting of Vancouver Island” was released by Some Other Sphere podcast on February 27th. In this episode, I was interviewed by Rick Palmer about The Haunting of Vancouver Island and our region’s ghost stories.

Voices of reason say they can not. Click on the image above for more information. Please consider signing the petition at pacificwild.org
