About Me

Hi, my name is Andrew: story collector, sound curator, bike commuter and pet owner in Lheidli T’enneh.

I make radio and tell digital stories in the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, better known as Prince George, British Columbia, Canada. I like my job and my home quite a bit, so that’s good. That being said, this is my personal site and is not representative of the views of anyone else.

I’m fascinated by the way we think about and interact with the world, the future of our culture, and strong storytelling. I’m also pretty good at using the internet.

By the way,  “Kurjata” is Eastern European (likely Polish) in origin. It’s pronounced “ker •ya •ta”. For future reference, please bookmark this page.

 

Radio

My job is to make interview and story-based radio. You can listen to some of my favourite bits here.

In 2014, I produced a special series called “At Home in the Hood”, highlighting stories from the poorest neighbourhood in my hometown. You can stream or download the podcast here.

 

Writing

My blog has gone through a number of iterations (which you can read about here), but at this point it’s mostly longer-form original/semi-original thoughts with a focus on radio, music, technology,  bikes, citizenship and the city of Prince George.

If you’re new, I suggest you start with the best of.
