: : : I am a member of the Columbia Lake Indian Band of the Kootenai Nation who has been working within various First Nations heritage resource management programs for a decade. These projects range from the design and assembly of interpretive exhibits for museums and tourism centers to the systematic implementation of traditional land use and occupation studies for the design and delivery of culturally appropriate media driven college coursework.
The ultimate goal is to incorporate contemporary digital media into native peoples' efforts to preserve and restore traditional methods of generational intellectual longevity. I am currently serving overseas with the United States Army as a reconnaissance scout for the Cavalry. Upon my return to civilian life, I will continuing to document my ever-changing life and the unwavering traditions of my family : : :
