About Me
I live and work just outside of Cambridge in Medford, MA as an artist. I love seeing theater, concerts, and dance. I am a regular meditator, yogi, and traveler and have journeyed to over a dozen countries. Meeting new people, seeing new places, and discovering new ways of thinking are what lights up my life. I enjoy hosting academics because it lets me meet people I never would have otherwise.
