I am passionate about life, about my career, about teaching. I

songwriter and a lyricist. I am a poet and an adventurer. I love
camping in Baja and the Sierras. Anytime is an appropriate time to

believe in experiencing everything. You only see what you know. I
read Sun Tzu. "The flavors do not exceed 5, but the combinations of
the 5 flavors can never be fully tasted."

I'm good in front of people. Public speaking and preforming kind of
turns me on.
