My youth was spent in a town of 500 people then, the suburbs and then SF as a young man. I majored in landscaping and horticulture in college but my life took a different turn as I fell into the world of corporate training and public speaking. But a unique perspective in which I provide Entertaining education using humor. I eventually became an AIDS educator, Safe Sex speaker and went on to address high risk youth markets for a public health department. Not easy making jokes about things like condoms and medication side effects but I did it with great response and referrals.
I find that humor can help your get through so many of life's difficult curve balls. After all a day without laughter is wasted. I'm the type of person who sees the irony and oddities of life that many just overlook. Such as finding a hand made sign on a clearance product table in a grocery store that read "Manger's Specials." Missing the extra A for Manager. So of course I couldn't resist and I wrote on the bottom, just to be helpful "Baby Jesus not included." Yes, I'm going to hell. But I'm bringing Marshmallows.
I love history, art, architecture, gardening, film and even well written television. Don't follow reality shows unless it's about real estate or design.
I enjoy joining friends for dinner and social functions, hiking, museum, galleries, (good) lectures, exploring areas I've never visited, or just having a quiet evening at home and enjoying the company of someone special.
