I learned the basics of science and engineering by earning a PhD in Materials Science from Stanford University and by teaching at Oregon State and other Universities.
I worked for Tektronix and Hewlett Packard, two iconic electronics companies, and learned the skills of problem solving via organized teamwork.
Throughout my career, I have actively sought to increase my understanding of human behavior ? particularly my own.
Upon retiring, I volunteered as a SCORE counselor for several years.
I am now writing short, guided "Journals for Seekers" to help people develop skills to improve both their personal life and their business life.
Topics to date include Serenity & Courage, Confidence and Curiosity, Transforming Grief, Stay on the Sunny Side, The Business Canvas, Five Skills to Guide Your Career

Marys River Watershed Council, based out of Corvallis, Oregon, works to inspire and support voluntary stewardship of the Marys River Watershed.
From Marys Peak to the Willamette River, from forests to farms, prairies to ponds, backyards to school yards, we?re cultivating strong neighborhood ownership of the watershed?s health.
We envision a future where abundant native fish live in the shaded creeks and rivers of our watershed. People feel connected to this place and see themselves as active stewards of the land and water. Investing in voluntary partnerships, the Marys River Watershed Council is a catalyst for restoring natural systems in a resilient watershed.
The results inspire us.
