About Me


Smart, creative, unconventional, divergent thinking, many passions, and a political junkie.


I enjoy getting to the heart of the matter, seeking out the deeper truths.


I love all types of music and performing arts. I enjoy reading books in all genres as well as writing my own stories, poetry and such.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw a dance performance last year, 2011,(Legend Lin Dance Theater) that made me understand the meaning of the word "visionary" as prior to that, I had not truly comprehended what that meant.

I have composed melodies on the guitar and written pieces that simply amaze me and I don't know how I did it or where they came from.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have started teaching a course in analysis and critical thinking skills. I would love to do more of that.
