Brief biography

After receiving my law degree, I worked as a public finance attorney, assisting on over $1.5 billion in projects around the nation.

I worked for over twenty years as an editor at Fulcrum Publishing, and I served as Publisher and President for a decade. During my tenure as Publisher, Fulcrum became one of the leading publishers of Native American books in the nation, focusing on social and political issues, and we also developed a book series on contemporary political issues.

 In 2015, I founded IM Education, Inc., a non-profit focusing on education programming.

I have taught at UWL for 7 years, and have also taught Political Science at Viterbo University.
