My mission is a creative voice in this world. I have been fortunate to have had a wonderful education and career background as an artist in addition to this.
During my career I have traveled many places which have given me a birds eye view of many things of this world, on many different levels. This has been the best part of my experience, meeting people and becoming involved in conversations and debates, or simply absorbing the cultures.
I was born into a family of musician-artist professors. My youth was absorbed into these aspects of travel, culture and studies many summers at Chautauqua Institution, known for the many great levels of speakers during their summers programs. During my life I have lived across the United States and have had a 7 year residence in Europe, (Czech Republic and Italy) with shorter residences in France, Australia. In 1980 I had the unique experience of travel to the former USSR with my father for a one month tour at the invitation of the Ministry of Culture. I have been to the PRC, first in 1982 and then again in 1985 being one of the first foreigners in Tibet Autonomous region.
