A few things I enjoy besides work and family are: writing, photography, worthy causes, and other activities to keep my brain (and hands) busy, heart full, and soul satisfied. There’s my micro-poetry at Haikumages, street photography at OHOS, my instant film and other photography at REMAGES, and all other things photographic (in the broadest sense) at Cameras+Films.
In 2022, a new project was launched, combining my lifelong love of people, radio, listening, and talking. It’s the podcast AudioConvo and although it’s taking a lot of my time, it is paying me back with HUGE fun and satisfaction! AudioConvo will focus on topics and issues that are core to my life and career: fashion, food, art, music, creativity, technology, business, and the future. My schtick (ya gotta have one) for AudioConvo is basically, “I don’t know a lot, but I know a lot of people who do!” I’ll have ongoing conversations with interesting people on relevant topics…
WALKABOUT — I am a proud alum of the Walkabout Program formerly located in Yorktown Heights, NY, which was launched in 1978, and ran for 37 years. Also proud to have participated in launching the new version of Walkabout which continues working to launch new programs and schools based on the proven core concepts and methods of the original program.
I am also a co-founder and member of the Walkabout Alumni Association (a.k.a. “WAA”) which provides resources, forums, networking, gatherings, events, community and support services for graduates of all — past, present, and future — Walkabout programs and schools.
