I am a  writer and oil painter. I am married to an olive farmer. We have four fabulous grandchildren. Life is good.

My last place of employment  was at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2014 where I co-instructed a class called Critical Analytical Thinking. The much-needed course fostered not only critical thinking but also writing. Alas, the MBA students indicated to the faculty that they did not “come to Stanford” to hone their writing skills; rather, they came to make connections and create apps.

Currently, I am retired.
