I moved back to the Valley after finishing up my undergrad in CT back in 2011. Now I'm working on an Masters up in Brattleboro.
I like spending time outside, I'm a big fan of forests, mountains, rivers, and waterfalls. I love singing, pretty much any kind of music. I'm really into dancing, going to concerts, pretty much anywhere where I can find a beat to move to.
I'm a drummer, and am into West African music. I have a lot of friends who study Guinean, Malian, and Ghanaian drumming and play together every first Saturday night in Amherst at the Drum and Dance there.
I am a peace activist, and I work with an organization called PeaceJam that pairs young people with Nobel Peace Laureates to promote, and work for peace in their local areas, through service learning projects and social justice education. It is one of the things I am most passionate about, and it is an incredibly rewarding experience every time I work with those kids.
My spirituality is a big part of my life and I'm an active part of the EarthSpirit Community (www.earthspirit.com).
I really like reading, and am into a bunch of different genres, but I have mostly been listening to audio books these days because I do a lot of driving.
