Inspiring and raising consciousness through film and media, being a better parent, preserving the natural environment and doing all can to ensure a livable future for my children and their generation.
Working on it...
Independent film, documentaries, New Mexico, raising kids, moving through and beyond separation and divorce.
After spending most of my career facilitating creative work in others I'm working on exercising those muscles again through making documentaries and creative writing.
I was introduced to TED via a writer and futurist I follow, James Howard Kunstler. This year, looking for inspiration, I joined the TEDxABQ book club started by Carrie Williar, and it has been a great introduction to the wisdom of TED speakers and willingness to share good ideas.
