I moved to North Adams from Boston, MA 11 years ago, drawn by the growing arts community, year-round culture, local historic architecture and natural beauty of the lakes, rivers and mountains. I am outgoing, enjoy the outdoors--whether hiking, swimming, biking or gardening, and I love doing restoration work on my house. I place close family relationships high on my priority list and have a group of really wonderful (and fascinating) friends who've become my 'chosen' family.
I owned a contemporary art gallery in North Adams for 5 years and have been on numerous boards of directors for area arts organizations each of my 11 years in the Berkshires. In addition to having a background in arts management I have worked for a number of years as a project management consultant for technology organizations. I shop and eat locally whenever possible--I like to support my friends and neighbors in contributing to our community.
I have traveled extensively world-wide (Europe, Asia/Asia-Pacific, US) and some of my favorite experiences and memories are related to the people I've met along the way. I thrive on hearing about other people's life experiences and stories.
After living in the city for so long, we wanted a getaway close enough to the city but far away from the hectic world. This home is perfect for really get away from it all.
There is totally privacy at this home as it is set off the road and on a small hill.
