About Me

After I graduated from high school in 2008 I spent 5 years traveling around the country work trading on different organic farms, intentional communities and homesteads. I'm currently living in Great Barrington, Massachusetts involved in many different community building projects such as barter markets, fermentation festivals, potlucks, documentary showings, community gardens etc.
