Profile Information

My career has been in education, primarily serving as an English teacher on the Navajo reservation for over two decades before semi-retiring to work for a small Tempe, Az based company in online education. Now am retired, so I have more time for passions like travel, movies, and watching baseball. I also enjoy volunteer work as a docent for the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Az. But I will be starting a new phase in September, 2014 as I relocate to Nepal.

Fox's original gay romance stands up as a very good film; this sequel is even stronger. It relies far less on developing a romance than it does…


Following the footsteps of Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, and Gandhi

Back from Nepal now nearly two weeks yet feeling a yearning to return, I was checking some Facebook posts one streaming newsfeed caught my attention. It referenced icons Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, and Gandhi and their success--referencing how their focus on their personal gifts and using them to advantage.

Unique gifts that profoundly changed the world.
