About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Human Rights Accompanier
Location Washington, DC, United States
Introduction After having spent two years in Colombia as a Human Rights Observer, I am now working in DC with Peace Brigades International's Colombia project. (views here are personal and not professional). I have also researched community-based models of alternative economies, advocated for affordable housing, and promoted environmental protection. I seek, in myself and others, passion, beauty, community, cooperation. I read voraciously, eat whole grains, enjoy drinking red wine and belgian beer, and ride bikes whenever possible.
Favorite Movies monty python and the search for the holy grail, usual suspects, diarios de motocicleta, sliding doors (yes, I like cheesy movies), so I married an axe murderer. you'll notice most of these movies are old - that's because i watch about 3 movies a year.
Favorite Music ben harper, sean hayes, dar williams, jaunes, ani difranco, holcombe waller, bersuit, mason jennings, josh ritter, miles davis, indigo girls, nickle creek, manu chao, joni mitchell, ingrid michaelson, patty griffith
Favorite Books the god of small things (anything by arundhati roy, really), pride and prejudice, of love and shadows, bel canto (just don't read the epilogue!), mountains beyond mountains, the alchemist, latin american history books (yes I'm a nerd!), the perennial philosophy, omnivore's dilemma
