OAMEC, the program where I teach during the academic year. Maine Fiddle Camp, a fantastic program where I teach in the summer. The Dagbe Arts Center, an extraordinary resource in Kopeyia, the village in West Africa where I studied Ewe drumming and made field recordings for The Secret History. Katy Hawkins, my sister and badass yogini. Modern dance legend Mary Anthony, with whom I got a brief opportunity to collaborate.
