Interest

I am an active member of local government, serving on East Haddam's Clean Energy Task Force. 

I am an avid reader of anything I can get my hands on, but especially literary fiction. 

I remain an active member of City Year's Alumni Organization and I take any opportunity to support national service organizations. 

I am a trained musician (piano, guitar and trumpet); have taught private music lessons and courses in guitar and songwriting.
