About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Marketing Director
Location Lowell, MA, United States
Introduction These are the things that make me happy: forming alliances for the greater good, surrounding myself with all manner of creative people, organizing and promoting music and art events, doing yoga with the sunrise, fiddling with electronics, writing prolifically about things like food or traveling or politics or sex, traveling solo... and understanding the way people around me live and think and breathe and what inspires them to walk on this planet.
