Davis Bates 73F P16

Since graduating in 1979, Davis been a professional storyteller, singer, actor, and voice artist, performing for schools, libraries, senior centers, colleges and other community groups. His participation in the Five College Folk Festival, Mixed Nuts Coop, and his work in theater at Hampshire started him on that path. Davis also is an avid gardener, interested in permaculture, sustainability, and pollinator plants.

He has two children, the younger of whom just completed her first year and Div I at Hampshire (beating her father’s timetable by quite a bit). Davis has been enjoying getting reacquainted with the Hampshire community as the parent of a student, and is looking forward to exploring the best ways he can support the College as a member of the AAG. He encourages other alumnae, staff, faculty, and students to get in touch with him if they have any thoughts to share.
