Tree-cyling is happening through the city this weekend. Checkout my recent blog post (includes a nifty interactive map) to find out when and where!

Story
Introduction

I've worked in Arts, Culture, and Social Change communities for nearly 10 years. I believe strongly in the power and strength of people coming together for the greater good and continue to learn and grow through collaborations focused on community generated change.

I enjoy Laughing Out Loud, knitting, changing the world, local sustainable business practices, food, yoga, nature, adventure, Philly, geeks, helping others, a well made Old Fashioned, and glitter; ... so much glitter!
