Mike Leonard

Media Instructor/Education Outreach Coordinator

Mike was born and raised in Woodstock, Vermont. After years of living and working abroad as an academic, teacher, and administrator, Mike has happily found himself back in the Green Mountains. He is a practiced ethnographer, having most recently conducted work investigating the sociocultural implications of the tourism boom in Iceland. Now that he is back in Vermont, Mike is working on a documentary film exploring the 251 Club - a club dedicated to visiting every one of Vermont's 251 towns and cities. He is excited to bring his years of experience as a teacher and an ethnographer to the Vermont Folklife Center's education program.
