Grew up around here on a farm up in the hilltowns where we have a decent sized garden, a bunch of rabbits and goats, and a llama.
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 peace 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, though because I do a lot of driving I have mostly been listening to audio books these days.
