I am a listener. I'm interested in the old (history, traditional storytelling, craft) & the new (social media, augmented reality,cell phones as supercomputers,& things yet unimagined). I consider myself (as John Zogby coined) a "First Global" & enjoy communicating w my friends in all corners of the world. My current career is in project & program management and sharing books & information w the public. My passions are international education, respecting traditions (because the new way isn't always the best way), enjoying cultural events esp. live music & learning something new.
