I have been an amateur cellist for the past eight years. I continue to take a one-hour lesson every week and perform twice a year during holiday and summer recitals with cello friends.
I also enjoy traveling with my family. I especially enjoy playing tennis with my wife and going to the movies with my daughter.
I am a frequent jogger, running between 20-40 miles per week.
In Fall 2009 I will publish my first book, Legacy: Passing on Cherished Values in a Values-Starved World. Some of the distinguished Americans I interviewed include:
Stacy Allison – First American woman to summit Mt. Everest
Robert Ballard -- Discoverer of the Titanic
Daniel Callahan -- Bioethicist & co-founder of the Hastings Center
Jack Coleman -- President, Haverford College & Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank in Philadelphia
Marva Collins -- Founder of a private school in Chicago & recipient of National Humanities Medal
Richard Cook -- Ethical dissenter, exposed cover-up in Space Shuttle Challenger disaster
Lynne Cox -- Long-Distance Ocean Swimmer Extraordinaire
Nonie Darwish -- Founder of Arabs for Israel
Thomas Doyle -- Exposed Clergy Sexual Abuse in the Catholic Church
Daniel Ellsberg -- Ethical dissenter, Leaked Pentagon Papers to the New York Times
Lt. David Lim -- Port Authority police officer who survived collapse of One World Trade Center on 9/11
I give two keynote speeches and workshops entitled: Passing on Cherished Values in a Value-Starved World and How to Live Your Life Like You Depended on It!
I am an award-winning corporate communications professional for more than 20 years in San Diego. During this time, I have been the principal of a public relations and marketing firm, worked for major public relations agencies, spent five years as on-air personality discussing business and the stock market on a major San Diego radio station, and led a bi-coastal communications team as a director of Corporate Communications with an international biopharmaceutical company. In the past 10 years I have worked exclusively as an investor relations and corporate communications executive in the local biotech community, principally with IDEC Pharmacueticals as director of Investor Relations and Corporate Communications.
