I live and work on the lands and waters of the Salish Sea: the homelands of the dxʷdəwʔabš (Duwamish), Muckleshoot, spuyaləpabš (Puyallup), dxʷsəqʷəb (Suquamish), and Tulalip nations. I am committed to creating space for these and other Indigenous peoples through my teaching, research, and service.
