I am passionate about:
cross-fertilizing people and innovative ideas--particularly in the fields of education/creativity, food/farming, urban/rural division, and social justice
A little known fact about me is:
I sleep with an open window year round. And I had to lie about my age here because 1953 wasn't an option.

"live love (I fail often, but I keep trying...)"
I have done a wide variety of things, but the unifying thread is that I like to start things. I have co-founded: Utne Reader; City of Lakes Waldorf School; the Headwaters Fund; and, currently, Lily Springs Farm. And other things including, a quarter century ago, a yoga studio. My house has been home or basecamp to dozens of people of different ages and varying nationalities including artists/musicians/designers, students, organizers, social entrepreneurs and even an explorer. Many collaborations have been seeded eating at the kitchen table or snuggled by the wood stove. Also I am a writer.
