Area 6 Marine Terrace – Alternate
Co-chair Transportation Committee

 

BACKGROUND
My roots are on Southern California. I was born and raised in the L.A. area, and a large part of my professional life was in journalism there at the Los Angeles Daily News and Investor’s Business Daily. I have degrees in English from Stanford (B.A.) and UCLA (M.A.), and an MBA from California Lutheran University. From the late 1990s until retiring in 2016, I was a self-employed writer and communications consultant.

LIVING ON THE NORTH COAST
My wife Barbara and I visited Cambria often starting in the late 1970s. We bought a weekend home here in 2005 and soon decided that living here full-time was what we really wanted to do. We took that step in 2009 and shortly thereafter built our current home.

WHY ARE YOU VOLUNTEERING TO SERVE ON THE NCAC?
Having served on the NCAC previously – as chair of the Land Use Committee and chair of the full Council – I know that the NCAC plays an important role as both an advocate and sounding board for our community. I also have learned that most people don’t have the time nor inclination to serve on public boards. But somebody has to do it. So here I am.
