I am a collector.  My curiosity always seems to get the best of me and this is one of my best assets.  I love to share, to exchange ideas.  While the bits of knowledge that I have collected are personally satisfying, when I share them with others, they take on a new life.


I am a summer kid.  I spent every summer weekend of my childhood trekking down to Cape Cod with my parents and my brother to spend languid days on the beach and in the water--surrounded by truckfulls of friends and flip flops.  Now that I'm all grown up, I live at the end of a windy driveway, on the top of a small hill, overlooking a cranberry bog and a pond.  I grow vegetables, bees, chickens, not much grass, and a little family of my own.  The ocean is a mile and a half away.

A long walk or a short bike ride.


Cape Cod is an amazing place.  It took me a long time to figure out how to stay here all the time.  Now that I do, I am making a life for myself and my family, through meaningful creative work in my local community.
