At the end of this month, I will be leaving my job at the Amherst Business Improvement District, where I have worked for the past year. Even though it has been demanding and stressful, I have greatly enjoyed this work, and leave on good terms. In the broad sense, I intend to continue doing “this work”: placemaking, community-building, working to make Amherst a better place. Just how I do that is still up in the air.
I’m looking forward to exploring different areas of my interest: web design, music, data analysis, computer mapping, event publicity, entrepreneurship, and politics. I am excited to discover where these interests lead me!
