About Me / Contact Me

Hey all!

My name's Ben, and I'm a senior here at Saint Michael's College.

I grew up in Syracuse, NY, and after graduating from high school in 2010 took a gap year in Wrocław, Poland, where I lived as an exchange student through the Rotary Exchange Program. I decided to go on exchange after high school because I knew a gap year would help me grow as a person, and I wanted to gain perspective other than what I have known as a kid from central New York.
I'm into skiing and was a ski racer throughout my childhood (and then some). Other passions include paddling, climbing, reading, cooking, hiking, and philosophizing on my porch. Outside of class, I'm an instructor in the Wilderness Program and a sandwich-maker at the best deli in Winooski. On certain nights, my friends and I get together to cook dinner and learn languages. I'm also a DJ for the college radio station, WWPV (tune in Thursdays 8-10PM online or FM 88.7 if in the area!), and the social justice scene on campus (mostly Common Ground). Economics is the pursuit of study, and this past summer 2014 was spent completing a research project under my adviser thanks to a grant from the SSRC. Currently in the midst of my senior thesis research, and I can't believe I'm so close to graduation!

I would be happy to answer any questions you might have via Twitter or email (brosbrook@mail.smcvt.edu)!

Thanks y'all!
