~ Personal Interests ~

I practice yoga on a regular basis and engage in some form of meditative and contemplative practice daily.

I enjoy expressing myself through various art forms, including drawing/painting, creative writing, playing music, and photography.

I grew up playing soccer, and still love the game with just as much passion.

I am a Lifetime Member of the Massachusetts Center for Native American Awareness, and avidly support the values espoused by this organization as well as by the United American Indians of New England and the American Indian Movement.

I also support organizations like the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), which facilitates federally-approved research into the medicinal value of using various psychedelic substances to treat psychological as well as physical suffering seemingly unaffected by common practices and forms of treatment.
