Profile Information

How long have you lived in Beacon?

More about me:
I'm a humble, honest, & sensible dude. I am presently employed as a Chef-Supervisor at the Wingate Skilled Nursing facility here in Beacon. I'm not fond of travel, and I don't drive. I suspect that will have to change soon however...

I am a fan of most artistic, and intellectual pursuits. I draw, write, play drums, cook, and recently begun getting into extremely amateur photography. I love food, and have spent a decade eating too much of it, so I've also recently begun to take working out seriously again. There's a long road ahead, but without a journey, what's the point of life?

I appreciate that this town has a life force, and is interested in nurturing and expanding on it. I come from a very depressed area, so living in a place like Beacon makes the world seem so much more open, and enticing.

Instead I was told even worse news...that this event had been flat-out cancelled due to "lack of interest". This news… Continue

I will be teaching the writing class at the library again in the fall/winter, not sure exactly when. But the participants asked me to continue teaching them, and so I am organizing a class independently of the library. If you're interested, let me know, though there will be a fee for this one.

Welcome to Beacon, by the way!
