the most important things to me are loved ones and music. i pretty much love all animals, though cats are my fave. don't worry, i just have two. i get to boston to see shows with friends on a regular basis, and love living just north in portland, where my favorite pastimes are seeing bands, playing in them, getting outside, listening to records, watching movies, being with friends, and sleeping in when possible. for work, i consult to nonprofits to help them do more with scarce resources. i've been doing it for quite a while now, and have been very fortunate to do interesting and impactful work.
