The Uncommon Life

Uncommon Personalities: Meet Maia Binhammer

October 5, 2017

Maia Binhammer, UncommonGoods Merchant Assistant

My hometown…

Vermont! I claim the whole state as my hometown because it feels that small, and that neighborly.

I’m passionate about…

Local and sustainable food, environmental conservation, instant-runoff voting, and Mel Brooks’ films.

I’m inspired by…

Rachel Carson and Amy Goodman.

If I could throw the perfect party…

It would involve a snowstorm, a crackling fireplace, and bottomless hot toddies.

The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen is…

The view from the monasteries of Meteora, Greece on an overcast November morning. If that place doesn’t inspire awe and deep self-reflection in a person, I don’t know what could.

My style is…

Playful, exuberant, and mercurial.

While working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…

That it really does take a village to raise a child… I mean, grow a business. I’m surrounded on a daily basis by so many individuals with such diverse talents and backgrounds – it’s impossible not to feel driven and inspired!

An uncommon fact about me…

I enrolled in a class during my freshman year of college entitled “Tightwaddery: The Good Life on a Dollar a Day,” and I maintain that it was the most useful course I ever took.
