“If we take the time to talk together, we may find we have a lot in common.”


I have interests that lead me to learn, research and discover, then turn around and produce, present and create. I might best be described as a curious and creative person who will use any means available to communicate clearly. I love people of all ages and circumstances, but I have a special place in my heart for those who are older and wiser than myself. However, the young and middle aged have much to teach me as well. Finally, I relish a good adventure. With excellent planning and a strategic goal, there is much that we can achieve for the Kingdom of God.
