I'm originally from northern connecticut, went to college, and now live in this odd place called Pioneer Valley. I entertain notions of becoming an expatriot sometimes, though. i play a mean bass drum and occasional fife. I get excited about simple things and miss going to protests. I worked as a theatrical lighting designer for a long time, so sometimes i still look at the sky and think of the color in terms of Rosco gel colors.
I like to read a lot. I usually balance out reading a classic with a contemporary, but I always have a pleasure-reading project. I have been a vegetarian for eight years and have no intention of going back. I like blasting classic rock and folk music when I drive - which i do a lot. I'm a huge fan of road trips and day trips and camping trips. I tend to turn everything i hear into a drum beat in my head, and i like to figure out what kind of music would play the soundtrack to individual peoples' lives. Mine would be experimental jazz that includes a violin and djembe drum.
I drink whiskey on the rocks when I go out, and enjoy having the occasional glass of wine with my friends. I have an eclectic work history, and my itunes shuffle is absurd. I like salvador dali and andy warhol. I won't buy things that were tested on animals, but I don't get offended if other people do. I like to knit blankets in the winter and tie dye anything i can get my hands on in the summer.
I like old houses and summer thunderstorms, but my favorite season is early autumn.
