I tend to interpret my life in terms of literature, especially mythology. When I detail my professional training and experience, I always think of Odysseus, Homer's reluctant hero who travels far and experiences much. It's been a fascinating journey, and I'm happy to have added Walden to it in 2014. I'm excited about higher education's new opportunities. You might also find me giving walking tours of downtown Los Angeles for the LA Conservancy. I look forward to learning with you.
