I have had a broad spectrum of work experience that has given me appreciation for the different perspectives of our society. My professional experience has also had me travel extensively across the U.S., but also to Europe and East Asia.
Graduated from the University of Florida with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. Also studied at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany for a year of post-grad work under the Fulbright program. (Quadrille-Mobay Grant).
I grew up in a couple of small towns in AL that you likely never heard of, but lived my teenage years in Pensacola, FL. My parents were teachers most of my childhood, while they also dabbled in several side gigs.
I have been married twice. I am not the best at marriage while saluting those how make it work.
Served on the Mueller Commission that was advisory to the Austin city council for building out the award-winning Mueller Redevelopment. I served on the Schalkenbach Foundation board for nine years (www.schalkenbach.org). The NY-based foundation sponsors projects related to the alternate economic ideas of Henry George. Our sponsored projects typically address solutions to our current economic dysfunction.
