What are you looking forward to gaining from the VC position?
I am really looking forward to engaging with the Providence community and building relationships with other people who are interested in food access, and food waste issues.
What inspires you to do good?
I am inspired by people who make the most of their situations. One day I was walking along a city street and saw a homeless man making ash trays out of aluminum cans. They were beautiful and he was giving them away, and accepting donations. It was the most inspirational thing I have ever seen.
What are some things you're thinking about lately?
I have recently been thinking a lot about energy, and the intangible way that positive energy changes the atmosphere of any space.
What has been your most rewarding experience regarding food access, justice, production, waste, etc?
Last spring I worked on a map of free food in Providence and interviewed a man who was working to create an edible forest on the South Side of Providence. His passion and energy were contagious, and it was really great to learn that we were helping with his mission of food accessibility through our project.
