About Me


Eliminate Poverty on Earth


Life motto: To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because I have lived.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Wow - just one! I tend to find amazing in every situation. It is a privilege to be alive - isn't that amazing enough?

Teach, Learn, Share

Languages, as a reflection of the abundant creativity of the human mind, inspire me to believe we apply the same creativity to solving just about any problem (poverty, climate change etc) that comes our way.
