I've lived in Western Massachusetts since 1983 and I love it here. I've lived in the Village of Shelburne Falls since 2000 and I've decided that I will live here for the rest of my life. I spend a lot of my time outdoors: hiking, snowshoeing, camping, tracking, birding, practicing ancient nature skills, kayaking, fishing, bicycling, and hunting. I currently serve on the Town of Shelburne Planning Board and in the past I served as a board member and President of the Greater Shelburne Falls Area Business Association.
I've been involved since 1995 in deeply transformative men's work which teaches men a perspective and a skill set they can use to become the men they want to be. (See the Mankind Project website for more information.) I developed and ran, with a team of women, a project to introduce women to the same perspective and skill set I've been teaching men. I am always happy to talk with men or women about this amazing work.
