Why do you do “the work?”    

Coming from the Quiet Corner, I’ve seen firsthand how many people and communities are left out of the opportunity to thrive. I’ve spent my career using words and images to fight alongside people whom the government has marginalized, because I have a deep-seated faith in the idea that when the power of the people holds the power of the pen, real, lasting change happens – not just in our laws, but in our culture. 

What are some specific places or things you love in Connecticut?    

The West Thompson Dam and Quaddick State Park hold special places in my heart, and I love the nooks and crannies of downtown Putnam and its many community events, the Audubon Center in Pomfret, and the magic of my local library.
