About me

The greatest compliment is to be called a woman of passion with high energy for love and life!

The Dalai Lama says that the true purpose for human life is to find what makes us happy.  This cuts across: gender, nationality, culture, and economics.  I agree with him; for my life I have found great happiness in my partnership with Margie, our lives in Ireland and our work to make graduate education around the world more efficient for all its participants.  Hopefully, these pages will share that love with you and bring you some measure of new ideas, joy in life or maybe just a smile of self-recognition.

If you are curious about our move from Colorado to Ireland here is an old youtube done by our friend Tracesea about the story:  The Move to Ireland Story
