Favorite HeadCount Band: Phish

Best HeadCount Experience: I love High Sierra Music Festival!  Every summer I have worked the festival for HeadCount has been more amazing - AND - I always registered an artist, a first time registration with the family and a political cynic there.  The festival is really special because it creates a community where I could reach so many different kinds of people --- and as a HeadCount volunteer I've always been given so much support and love from the festival.

What's Your Issue? Personal Liberty, specifically same sex marriage and other gay rights issues.

Why do you like volunteering for HeadCount? I like volunteering for HeadCount because I am not telling people what to think or do, but rather giving them a voice in the democratic process and encouraging them to use it!

Hobbies: Hiking, Yoga, Cooking, Flower Gardening
