I am so honored to have been chosen, among 21 other extremely talented young musicians, to perform at Brattleboro Youth Rock Festival 2019. This event was so well organized, all the way down to a beautiful stage set-up, and super organized greenroom. Vivacious teenagers in bands and solo acts graced the indoor and outdoor stage nonstop from 2:30 to 11:00, even sound and lighting was run by youth (paid!) interns. I played a thirty-minute set, and had a blast. The event was fantastic! The audience was enthusiastic! I will definitely come back next year – even if I’m not performing. Videos and photos are up on my Instagram and Facebook, and very soon will be on YouTube… ROCK ON!!!
I am thrilled to announce that I recently had the opportunity to give a TEDx Youth talk at the TEDx event organized by the students of Mount Everett High School. The title of my talk is “How I Learn Matters”, and in it I explain my experiences and philosophies about education. Some of you may know that I have home schooled for my K-12 education, but very few people (except the home schooling people, themselves) really know about what we do. Of course, there are many different reasons and styles for home schooling, and they are as diverse as the families that employ them. I gave this TEDx Youth talk to explain all about my unique home schooling style, and how it has shaped me into the person I am today.
