Professional ​
info​​

I am a strategic planner and a Jewish Communal Services Worker, with a strong  background in educational advocacy and community support services.

I study people, society, and cultures. Culture often includes philanthropic interests, politics, and religion.
Most of my work has been focused on my own Ethno-Religious group and on the Indigenous Americans  upon whose land we live.

 

I have a strong interest in ecology and human responsibility towards our fellow inhabitants of the earth.  
Most of my professional history has the common thread of community ethics with a slant towards practical application.
