“Every one has a story to tell, but not everyone is given the chance, or asked the questions they want to answer. I am excited by getting communities to connect in ways they hadn’t previously, and to provide technical and narrative help to turn these conversations into something that has a greater impact for those in the community, as well as those visiting. Southern Utah is often exalted for its natural beauty. I’m excited about telling the world about its residents.”
