A little about my background ...

Born in Savannah, Georgia, I have enjoyed a life of interesting twists and turns that has taken me to far-flung locales around the globe:  Kenya, Russia, Japan, several countries in Europe, and numerous countries up and down the Western Hemisphere. But, today I call Golden, Colorado, home and am determined to stay put ...!

     Working and living among people of different lifestyles, faiths, and ethnicities has provided me with a perspective that's tolerant and understanding of many issues.

      My diverse worklife has also crafted my personality and who I am today.  I have worked in the communications industry -  in broadcasting, advertising and public relations - for a wide variety of clients in industries such as tourism, real estate and development, and technology.  I have lobbied in Washington, D.C. for clean energy and water.  I have run two non-profits, and two for-profits.

      Today I run the IX Power Foundation which is working on a number of different projects both here in Colorado, and hopefully soon in Bangladesh and other countries heavily affected by contaminated water issues.

      Give me a call or drop me a line ... I'm sure we have lots to talk about!

My father used 
to say that it's never too late to do anything
you wanted to do. 
And he said, 
'You never know what you can accomplish
until you try.'
