Author, Poet, Explorer
I am a beginning writer of stories through exploration of poetry, art and photography.
My professional life's work has been in the field of education (K-12 Public School Teacher, Private School Principal, University Professor, State Education Consultant) with a focus on poverty issues and its impact on education policy and student achievement.
In 2006 I co-founded the Shadowleaves Company. Our mission is to help people connect with others. Writers, artists, photographers, musicians, designers, students, parents of all ages and of course grandchildren -- connecting the creative to action! To share the joy of writing, photography, music and art with others.
At this time, I am exploring nature, art, writing, poetry and the space they create in our daily life that help shape our decisions and values.
I have recently retired and living in the Ozarks on Lake Ann, Bella Vista, AR.
