WELCOME TO MY STORY
   
Welcome to my website which summarizes my work and other activities over the last 35 years.  Born in New York
City in 1951, I was raised in Rye, an affluent, conservative
NY suburb where I was privileged to receive a good
education and opportunities to participate in many
wonderful recreational and cultural activities.  Both my
parents were avid sailors and I was fortunate to spend a
lot of my summers on the water, often living on larger
sailboats and exploring the New England coast.  These
experiences inspired in me a great love for nature and
adventure.  My long family heritage of public leadership
dating back to the early days of this country and my
participation in various community service activities
through high school instilled a sense of civil responsibility. 
 
     

  Subsequent to graduating from college, I went
  on to
live in New York City, San Francisco,
   Munich, Aspen, San Diego and finally Santa Fe
   where I have been since 1988.  I've been the
   primary single parent of Sarah and Jonathan,
   twins who graduated from college in May 2013
   and are working in fields of their choice in NM
   and Michael, a 2010 college graduate who is on
   an international quest for developing sustainable
   communities.  All three were born at home by
   water-birth.  Janella Moore, the mother of my
  
children, Naraya Stein and Azlan White have
  
been my significant life partners to date.

My love for architectural form and how it sets the context for or facilitates human activity led me to my earliest business ventures in the field of real estate development.  I also found myself drawn to the medium of film with it's power to entertain, educate, inspire and transform viewers by transporting them through a vast array of multi-dimensional experiences.  As the limitations of my more traditional upbringing became apparent amidst the cultural and political explosion of the 60's, I was spurred on a quest for personal evolution and began to participate in the expanding arena of transformational / personal development workshops and disciplines, eventually facilitating and producing various programs and events.  My diverse career has been a weaving of these threads, each involving collaborative effort and seeking to promote personal awareness and evolution and inspire more heart-centered community inter-action and stewardship.

Now that my children are mostly living away from home and my child-caring responsibilities are waning, I find myself in a phase of redefining who I am and how I want to express myself in the world.  The process of creating this website has been a great life-review experience and a starting point for visioning this next chapter of my life.  My purpose is to present not only a summary of what I have done but the motivations, values and sensibilities behind my choices.
