I have a passion for life and love. I have devoted most of my life to making the world a safer, more just place. I started out as a farmer, chef/restaurant manager, and attorney. But, for the last thirty-plus years, I have managed various mostly national and international environmental, peace and/or disarmament NGOs. For the last seven years, I have been taking it easier and have more time for a home life and committed relationship I believe in alms, karma, reincarnation and service. I am a blood donor, dancer, Democrat, feminist, good friend, great lover, mensch, organizer, organic gardener, ovo-lacto vegetarian, philanthropic advisor and swimmer.
