I have been at MIGIZI for 11 years. Before that, I led my own youth media nonprofit called PCTV, Phillips Community Television. I also co-founded the Twin Cities Youth Media Network and I am on the community faculty at the School of Social work at the University of Minnesota. I have also produced my own media productions and am a writer. I have been seen playing drums in some local bands.
