So far I have taken classes focused on education, theatre, and human studies. 

My approach to human ecology:

I found a combination of quotes in Writing Culture by James Clifford which I think describes my experience of human ecology so far:



Mapping the Oceans Stories (MOS) . The MOS project goal is to build individual accounts and a collective picture of how fishermen and community members live, work, and play on the USA’s Eastern coast’s and waterfronts. This Maine-based project documents oral histories and assembles personal stories and knowledge with geo-referenced mapping. This work is conducted in order to provide a body of fine-grained insights and knowledge on the impacts of regulatory actions or environmental changes which can be shared among a wider community. Collecting and sharing stories to instill a strong sense of community that fosters resilience to change is the foundation of MOS’s work and the individual work it continues to inspire.

Life on Mount Desert Island:

My favourite aspect of living on MDI is being within biking distance of the ocean and Acadia Park. 

Activities, traditions, celebrations:

Some of my favourite times have been at my work-study position with the Outing Club and Take-a-Break. I enjoy informally meeting with people to do acrobatics and go climbing.

Best meal on campus:

Crab cakes and fresh salad greens from the farm!

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

As a friend of mine said

“It depends on the context.. and whether you are cooking with chicken or eggs.”
