My name is Justin, I'm a twenty-year-old lay Theravadin Buddhist from Anchorage, AK. I'm sa frequent participant over at E-Sangha, and I think I will find this forum an incredible resource as well!
I am a member of Wat Alaska Yanna Vararam, a Dhammayut Thai Temple in Anchorage, I've been practicing and studying Buddhism for a bit over four years now...definitely no expert!
Outside of the Dhamma, my interests are music (majoring in opera at university), cooking, foreign languages, theatre, law/history...main hobbies (outside of constant rehearsals and performances) are road-tripping all over Alaska and cigars (my vice).
