My TED story
Introduced to TED in 2010 by my friend Darina, actively spreading ideas & TEDtalks to all my friends, community & business partners & clients - both virtually & in person. Have & will continue to actively participate & volunteer & support the organization of the local TEDxWomen & TEDxOjai & TEDxOjaiChange events in the past, present & future. Would love to connect with many other like-minded TEDsters around the world to share ideas, learn new skills and apply worthy projects that will have glocal impact in everything we do from growing food, to educating our children to doing business in new ways while caring, protecting & honoring the Earth and all living being. Interested in applying the latest digital, 3D and holographic technologies for improvement of education in the areas that need it most.
