My self-summary
I am blessed with good health, a mountain of international experience, no debt, a vibrant family and a lifelong dedication to education. I am a public figure, but a private loner. The right compromise is the essence of satisfaction, and this I have not yet found.

What I’m doing with my life
I tend a flower garden, work on education in a half dozen new countries (universities and primary schools) each year, teach graduate students, photograph faces of people, publish various pontifications for those who have seen less than I, search for unusual art, work on my consulting business, attend church (for the first time), raise money for charity, cook for friends, take my adult children on trips they will never forget, care for my elder sisters, read stories of 19th century adventures, drink strong coffee watching the sunrise from my hot tub, search for a new Portuguese wine, swim in the lake next to my home, and watch foreign films in my living room.
I’m really good at
I learn from listening. I am comfortable in any culture and with persons from widely divergent backgrounds.
The first things people usually notice about me
People tend to be comfortable with me because my face (I am told) is kind. When meeting someone for the first time I might tell them on the phone: look for the guy with a bald head and a smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
historical novels and travel stories from earlier eras.

independent films, often from Sundance

Chinese, Indian, Persian, Mexican, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Ugandan.
Six things I could never do without
my camera
a novel
the Economist magazine
my laptop
my dog Mr. Corky (but he is gone now)
my children
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my garden
schools in Kenya
why I can't seem to accept the immaculate conception
my students
how love becomes permanent
whether our political parties can learn to play fair
why I ended up so lucky
On a typical Friday night I am
cooking for neighbors (pasta night!) and watching a silly movie in my home theatre
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
an ex-wife or girlfriend reflects my choice; hence no hard feelings is sound policy.
You should message me if
you are curious.
The two of us
