After ten wonderful years of playmaking and art-instigating in Boston, I’m moving to San Diego!
In late October, I will start work as Manager of Exhibition Development at the New Children’s Museum: an innovative space that encourages creativity and critical thinking through transformative experiences with contemporary art. Though I am sad to say goodbye to the city that I love, I couldn’t be more excited about this new opportunity.
As part of my swan song, the very talented photographer and blogger Nathaniel Fink (of Cycle Style Boston) spent some time with me and my trusty Altra bike during Circle the City’s Open Streets festival. Nathaniel and I biked up and down Blue Hill Ave, which, for one day, became a pedestrian pathway between Dudley Street and Grove Hall. Along the way, we happened upon many of my friends and colleagues, from the Food Project, Boston Cyclist’s Union, Boston Children’s Museum, the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative and more. It was an ideal way to see “my people” and to reflect on my transition and my new challenge.
