I’m a quirky Canadian-American with a habit of collecting hobbies. I am passionate about sustainable agriculture and food security. I love anything creative, but my favorites are writing and photography. I’m also an avid equestrian, and I love to explore forgotten and abandoned places.

Here on Jest Kept Secret, you’re liable to see book reviews, travel photography, snippets of my writing, fun things I’ve discovered, and random blatherings. You’re also sure to see lots about my faith. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints–you’ve probably heard us referred to as Mormons. I love when people ask questions respectfully, so don’t hesitate to ask if there’s something you want to know. This won’t be an overtly preachy site, but my religion is a big part of who I am and why I am so in love with the world.

Anyway, welcome to Jest Kept Secret, you wonderful human. We’re gonna be best friends.

Love, me
