Sean Davis is a writer, a veteran and a wildland firefighter. He lives in McKenzie Bridge, Oregon. In the summer of 2020, the McKenzie River Valley was devastated by a forest fire that quickly burned 174,000 acres and destroyed more than 500 homes.
Sean says he has been to the apocalypse four times. He has seen difficult things and you will find that he shares those stories candidly. You will also notice that he shares even the most graphic details with laughter...not because he doesn't care, but specifically because he does.
We talked about the ways he and others supported his community in the wildfires, the PTSD he has struggled with after his military service, and the healing that writing and art have brought to his life.
