Eruption started in the mid 1990s as small independent publishing and art company. The dream then was to hide in the mountains with pen, paper, paints and adventures. My experiences as an outdoor leader, journalist, artist, teacher and tribal activist would keep me busy creating endless paperbacks to change the world! But Life kept handing me new opportunities— adventures, the ski industry, the visual and written arts, race relations, classrooms (both indoor and outdoor), culinary arts and my fascinating tribal family— for more ways to be my dynamic self for more decades.    Today, all of that action has weaved a path for me as the Curator and Tribal Liaison for R.L.K. and Company. Since 1955, this company holds the operating permit of a National Historic Landmark Building and ski area at the top of Oregon. You know it as Timberline Lodge. Thankfully, my ski instruction keeps me moving right along with these roles where I blend my passion for the mountains, arts and ancestral land connections. ​
