Lurker, now creating account

I've lurked a bit the last few months, and occasionally over the years. I find myself wondering about various dhamma topics, and Google searches inevitably lead me to Dhamma Wheel. I'm really impressed by the knowledge of folks here, and thought it would be fun to join the conversation.

I have a background in "the arts" -- weirdo music and more recently working for a nonprofit that does arts based gun violence prevention. I live in Oregon but spend a good deal of time on the road, including time in Northern California.

I've practiced for many years in the larger "insight meditation" world, practicing under lay and monastic teachers. My engagement with the dhamma and with dhamma communities goes through ebbs and flows, but I'm quite excited these days. At the moment, I'm particularly interested in learning more about Theravada beyond the more popular US centers and teachers, as well as understanding the historical developments of practice, teachings, and techniques, here and abroad.
