Educational background: MBA, Atkinson Graduate School of Management, Willamette University; BA, Journalism, The Evergreen State College; Minor, German, Western Washington University.
I'm VP of Business and Clean Energy Development for a start-up that provides affordable, universal design homes for aging-in-place, and principal of a finance company that provides unsecured financing to small businesses. I've taught "Leadership in Sustainable Management" for Marylhurst University's MBA in Sustainable Business as an adjunct faculty. I tutored English as a Second Language in Kumamoto, Japan, for two years, where I co-translated a travel guide to Japan's citizen groups and edited "Kumamoto Time Out." My tutoring subjects include Writing, English/ESL, German, Japanese, Business, and fun. I'm excited about empowering students with the skills, perspective, and motivation to achieve their dreams and make a difference. My interests include backcountry skiing, bicycling, gardening, cooking, travel, environmental policy, new/free energy technology, playing instruments (mandolin, flutes, etc.), and writing songs.
