Michelle Brint

Michelle spends a lot of time asking questions. It's not necessarily driven by the desire to receive answers (read; 'the answer') but rather by the sense of wonder inspired when someone chooses to respond. Briefly, the invisible inter-workings of another's mind become tangible. For the same reason she loves watching people create, as if someone put their neurons to an ink pad and stamped the page, stage, clay, wall, or the air around our ears. She had a lot of opportunities to ask questions at UNC-Chapel Hill where she studied Sociology, and she had time to watch people create when she spent a year learning with BINA Secular Yeshiva. Recently, Michelle moved to Chicago where she works at the Jewish Enrichment Center, drinks gallons of coffee, reads religiously, and smiles at every baby, dog, and old person she sees.
