In 2010 I started the Pants Records record label with my friend Liz Wing. We only release music digitally or on re-used media such as cassette or VHS tapes.
The Burlington Betterment and Beautification Bureau is a group I started with Becca Hill in 2011. This organization is concerned with the following:
We pursue these concerns by engaging in the following activities:
Every meeting of the BBBB includes a trash pickup parade. The BBBB is loosely organized through an email list and Doodle events. The BBBB owns and operates a Seed Bomb vending machine from Greenaid as well as a tiny free library.
In 2009 I started the F Cinema in my garage with help from my then roommate Ryan Winnick. We showed movies around once a week during the summer and fall of 2009 and less frequently during that winter and following spring. I designed and printed flyers and tickets for events which included showings of local films, a chat roulette night, live broadcasts from corespondents in China and Russia. Some nights drew a crowd, some nights it would just be 2 people smoking hash and watching Black Orpheus. At the peak of a heat wave we showed a sexy movie and handed out paper fans which I designed and constructed. We also hosted music festivals for Pants Records.
I host a wiki for my housemates. It's mostly about how to use the functions of the various computers and equipment around the house. I also organize house meetings, pay the bills, maintain the computer network, built a mirror room, built a loft, built a photobooth and organize awesome events.
I started a business experiment in 2010 called Sewstainable Repants. I designed, printed and distributed the above flyer. All of my materials were recycled.
During my senior year at Hanover High School I organized a sled club. We petitioned the class council for money to buy sleds to go sledding behind the school. I made a video about it for a high school art class.
