Where did you live prior to moving to the Pioneer Valley?

I lived in NY as a kid, moved to Miami as a teen, left for college to Sarasota and Berkeley, moved back to South Beach because my mom was there alone after my day died, worked doing a number of different things but had always been an artist and writer, and danced for a long time, so I finally went to Grad school at Boston University, lived there a year after graduating, and then lived back in South Beach. It's changed a lot over the years I've lived there. So hedonistic and party party party, and a huge amount of plastic surgery and an enormous Latin population from all over Latin America. But it is also a big city and has a huge amount of people from all over the world coming to visit so it's very interesting in its diversity.

What's one thing you enjoy about living in this region?

That people look natural and are much more humane. I like the doctors and other healers I work with, I like the meditation community, I like that people are critical of the injustice in the world and many people are doing things about it, and I like the fact that there are a lot of teachers..


I am new to the area. I came here because my brother went to school in the valley and never left and this is totally the opposite of where I've been living.
