About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore, explore, explore!

ABOUT ME

I am friendly, tolerant, empathetic, curious, hideously un-mechanical, ironic, happy and respectful. I enjoy talking to people of all ages (I used to coach a high school basketball team and gained so much from interacting with the kids).

PHILOSOPHY

This remains a work in progress. One should aspire to a life of significance. Materialism, though seductive, is not the answer. Relationships, connections, bringing a smile, laughing, touching someones life in a good way is the answer
