I am inquisitive, love to learn new things. I believe in the “it takes a village” philosophy and give time to community activities, including elected political office. I’m a social liberal, fiscal moderate. I love live theater and I’m active in our local community theater, both backstage and on stage (mostly musicals). Also love the arts and music, including opera. Although I am a retired computer scientist who focused on cyber security, I stay very busy indulging in my many interests. For example, I had an interest in learning more about the health care industry and I am now president of a non-profit that owns and operates a skilled nursing/rehabilitati on center and an assisted living facility. I like taking walks/bike rides and would travel more if I had someone with whom to share the experiences. Finally, I am introspective and much more articulate in writing than speaking. I’m often more comfortable giving a speech in front of a thousand people than making one-on-one small talk but I'm a great listener.
