About Me

“I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act.” – Janet Mock

Hi I’m Kalene and I love story telling in every form. When I’m not helping to tell the stories of your lives and love with my camera, I’m an editor for an art and poetry magazine, and the marketing manager at an independent bookstore in small town Kansas. I also lead a peer support group for LGBTQ people and have a Master’s degree in Social Work.

For me, stories are powerful beyond measure. They change us in ways we don’t fully understand. At some level, I believe we are the sum of the stories we hold dearest. I’m committed to telling a more authentic, whole hearted story with this stage of my life and I’d love for you to be a part of that.

What stories do you have to tell? Is it a story of courage? Growth? Connection? Finding yourself or maybe leaving behind some things that were no longer serving you. Whatever brings you here to this corner of the web today, I want you to know that you’re welcome, completely.
