For many years I unschooled my two beautiful sons as a single dad, and they are have grown and flown into amazing young men. I now work with unschooling teens in the same way. I'm enthusiastic, playful, and visionary. I also enjoy being silly and doing ordinary things -- like hiking and playing volleyball and listening to music. I'm a loyal friend, and I am interested in creating an interpersonal atmosphere that we can all flourish in. I like to empower others. Here's a lyric I try to live by:
Wake now discover that you are the eyes of the world
Wake now discover that you are the song that the morning brings.
