Hello everyone! My name is Oliver Brass and I am excited to be joining the Northend Greenway project. I’m a senior Cultural Communications Major at James Madison University with a Political Communication Minor. Next year I plan to head to grad school and continue this whole academia thing into the near future. I’m a highly active member of the James Madison Debate Team and work in the Communication Studies office on campus.
A large chuck of my childhood was spent in the rural Rappahannock County where I spent the majority of my time outside hiking, bike riding and wandering the forest pretending to vanquish dragons. A few years ago my family moved to Virginia Beach and now my favorite place on earth is the beach. I’m really excited to be working on the Greenway and helping to actualize such a large project with so many benefits that will encourage locals to get outside more and appreciate nature. I’m looking forward to meeting all the other people who have invested time and energy into this project and helping to get even more people involved.
