About Me: 

Long before I was a member of a college audience listening to Anne Sexton, stunned by her brilliance, even after so much vodka, sad that little was left of her life; and even before reading Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man" and the "Death of Socrates;" and even before I listened to the woman who survived the bombings of Hiroshima or Nagasaki; I knew racism, sexism, homophobia, age-ism, domestic violence, sexual predation, religious hatred, war, poverty and more. I see them all as aspects of one terrible, much denied reality of inequality and injustice--denied by many perpetrators and just as many of those who suffer it. I have also known throughout my life, nearly from the beinning, through all the exclusions and associated harm, that I am a student of life, that I can learn and that I can reject marginalization, survive and stand. I stand as a witness, a social commentator and a constantly researching, reporting analyst. I work to confront these circumstances, bring about change, document events and strategies and cross-teach with whoever I can. I work to be free in my lifetime which requires working for the freedom of all. This is what matters to me every day. I am hear to learn, to share what I know, and to share the comfort and satisfaction that comes with each achievement. "Freedom," wrote another insightful author, "cannot be divided. Either we all have it, or none of us do." This is my focus.

My Passions: 
singing, literary writing, writing music/lyrics, dancing, language, living in the moment and for the future, learning from the past and from the young and very old
My Challenges: 
Building a new, global social entrepreneurship to raise funds to establish new institutions of arts, education and mechanisms to constructively alter politics and to fund other social entrepreneurs in need of capital to develop and grow
My Vision for the Future: 
the end of separate and unequal in everything; the emergence of equality and justice in education, wealth, power, health (of flora and fauna and all the planet); the end of domination of the masses by ideologies which cover up war and its consequences
My Areas of Expertise: 
critical thinking, communication, investigation, documentation, dissemination of information and opportunities, teaching, singing, writing, recognizing talent and giftedness in others
My Languages: 
English, Spanish
