Introduction “You’re not from here, are you?” Is a refrain I’ve often heard in various places in my life. A transplanted northerner (I’m from Minneapolis, MN) living south of the Mason Dixon Line for the past 15 years, I am not from here in many subtle and not so subtle ways. The belief that “..the nail that sticks out gets hammered down” challenges me to look closer and question more. Not being “from here” is mostly a good thing. I don’t need the familiar to be comfortable. I seek out different experiences and enjoy different points of view and opinions. I am a corporate refugee, having been one of "them" (you know, THEM of US vs. THEM.) for 20+ years. I gave it up to follow my passion - telling stories and connecting in a more personal way.
