I was born January 29, 1957, in Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix was a small town, and I was a product of that environment and that time period. I have always felt you must stand up for what you believe but to respect the viewpoints of others. I think listening should be the first action to insure the best outcome in reasoning and understanding the challenges that confronts us. Life is meant to be challenging to appreciate our experiences we face. I get the greatest satisfaction working with others towards a common goal; most of the greatest accomplishments have been through harmonious efforts. As a group we can do much more and learn that our combined differences and mutual respect are what make our world better.
I am curious, like to discover new things, create and build in a way that can blend with my surroundings. I follow the new science discoveries; I like hiking, reading, variety of music and meeting new people. I have worked as grounds-keeper in the mountain parks, a carpenter, security, telemarketer, pizza delivery, manufacturing at AT&T, a tutor, public relations and union steward and a substitute teacher for 2 years but went back to security at a high school until I can get into a career in counseling.
I am trying to form a routine of meditation and exercise to improve my health and outlook on life. I want to make the most of every moment.
