About The Show

Voices from the Community logo

I have never learned more about the world than by producing Voices from Our Community. Voices is a collection of stories about people from, and events in the Vancouver/Portland area. These stories will live with me for a very long time.

I joined the KXRW team near the beginning, well before we started broadcasting. After I helped move our 700 pound transmitter cabinet into place I knew that while the tower climber was installing our antenna and our first broadcast date grew near I had better come up with a name for my show. All the other pieces were already in place from years of research and writing and living in the Northwest.

My goal with Voices From Our Community is to help people share their story, inspire people to take action and to speak truth to power.
