I am a writer and oil painter. I am married to an olive farmer. We have four fabulous grandchildren. Life is good. I split my time among great artistic centers: Cambria, California, the Phoenix Valley, Arizona, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
My last place of employment was at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2014 where I co-instructed, with Professor Bill Chace, a class called Critical Analytical Thinking. Ironic as my father always told me to stop overthinking things.
I like to cook, read, power walk up my hill with my Labrador, oil paint, write, tell stories to whomever will listen, stretch, and daydream.
My artistic goal is to have my art recognized in an art show.
