... a singer, community organiser, and researcher in Montague, Massachusetts, with a curiously varied collection of scholarly and occupational hats. Present and past roles include building community through inclusive song leading; helping people live well with terminal illness; directing political policy for a gubernatorial candidate; coordinating volunteers and training staff for political campaigns and a fiction magazine; and serving on the board of trustees for my town's libraries and on the committee for my village's common hall.
I design and create; discover patterns, illuminate data, and communicate clearly; help people ask better questions and find their answers; and empower small communities with big ideas to organise and build a better world.
