I am a folklorist and a storyteller. This is where I share the beauty and wonder of my home place. I am currently the Director of Living Heritage for Heritage Saskatchewan. Previously, I worked for SaskCulture and as a social media coordinator for the National Film Board of Canada’s Grasslands Project. I am also a filmmaker and the director of two short films produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

This blog was borne out of my homesickness when I was living in Newfoundland studying Folklore. Though I loved my time on a windswept island in the North Atlantic and will always hold it in my heart, distance from home made me realize for the first time how much I had been shaped by my prairie roots.

Born and raised on a farm in the deep south of Saskatchewan, I am passionate about the cultural heritage of the rural prairies and I enjoy uncovering the hidden stories of our shared landscape. As a writer first and foremost, this blog is where I give free rein to my creative impulses, so you’ll find a mix of content, from folklore and history and my experiments with photography, to musings about my personal connection to this place which I am privileged to call home.

Thank you for stopping by!
