    Primary interests:

    My wife, son, and I enjoy hiking (the Appalachian Trail runs nearby), biking, backpacking, Nordic skiing, sea kayaking , dance, and folk music. I teach social and ritual English Dance traditions: my English Country Dance series runs in the winter and spring, and I am the dance coach for a teenage young men's morris dance team (and a new mixed kids team), the Green Mountain Morris. I have performed as a member of Oak Apple Morris (Madison WI), Millstone River Morris (Princeton NJ), and Four Corners Morris (Thetford/Strafford, VT). I was dance choreographer for the recent Revels North production of a Celtic Christmas Revels. We also love Norwegian music and dance, particularly Telespringar and Telegangar, as well as skiing in Norway. Our pets have included a Border Collie and two cats; for a decade, our lawnmowers were two Navaho Churro sheep and two Angora goats, but in recent years we have hosted a small heard of cattle on our land.
