We are proud to introduce our new Program Associate, Shawn Musgrave! Shawn will be coordinating the Education Program and helping out with communications, so you can count on seeing him on the blog and in the classroom.
A recent graduate of Boston University, Shawn is deeply committed to bicycling for recreation and transportation. One of Shawn’s current projects includes a travel guide to the Boston area by bike, requiring extensive research (riding around). Shawn has good experience to draw from, since he was a pedi-cabber prior to joining the staff at MassBike.
Shawn is also an improv comedian, doing past work with Improv Boston. This is great experience for his current role. Half the battle when teaching bicycle education classes is keeping the students engaged. Children and adults alike are going to be in for a real treat when Shawn is the class instructor.
Finally, you might be seeing Shawn’s name in other venues as well. He is an active freelance journalist, and just yesterday had a story published on the front page of the Boston Globe! Basically, we’re really lucky to have him in the MassBike office. Be sure to welcome him as you see him in the classroom or at tabling events in the coming months.
