About Me


Learning about different cultures, sharing ideas and enjoying people who think differently.


For much of my life I've divided my time between music and technology. I’m a musician and have played many styles of music. I’ve taught electrical engineering and worked in bio-engineering and programming. I have danced all my life and teach Latin social dances. I love to use music to bring people together. I would like to help us all to enjoy our cultural diversity rather than let it divide us.


I’ve always been committed to social reform and progress. I’m much more socialist than capitalist, more spiritual than religious.
