Casual elegance, ready smile, irreverent wit -- never full of herself. Excellent traveler, public board director,-- innovative charitable and open. Well-informed , curious, laid back and easy to talk to yet cosmopolitan and sophisticated. Movie-goer, animal-lover, news-junkie. Good company and good conversationalist -- above all, a real friend who is genuinely interested in others.
In my own words, I would describe myself as kind-spirited, active, creative, hard-working and able to laugh at myself. I do tend to downplay my accomplishments, if you can believe it... In fact, all the above description comes from several good friends who I asked to describe me when putting together this profile.
I came to California in my 20s to pursue a career in the software business and worked in the industry from the IBM 360 through the internet boom from programmer to CEO. Today I work part-time and serve on several public and not-for-profit boards.
