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 love to travel, and because I knew a gap year would help me grow as a person and gain a 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 involved with the college radio station, WWPV (tune in Saturdays 5-7PM online or FM 88.7 if in the area!), and the social justice scene on campus (Common Ground, SGAC, Green Up). Economics is the pursuit of study, and the summer of 2014 was spent completing a research project under my adviser thanks to a grant from the SSRC.

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