About me

My current community service activity is raising a guide dog puppy for the blind.  Our last dog two dogs we raised are now guides to people in California.  Each dog is trained in basic obedience and social manners and sometimes will join client meetings.  After approximately a year the puppy continues his training at the Guide Dog campus in Boring, Oregon. 


I also as an volunteer attorney for Lawyers Fostering Independence - assisting youth who have aged out of foster care and need legal advise.


 Other interests of mine include, gardening, cooking (fried chicken is a specialty as a result of my mother's southern influence), attending Seattle Storm basketball games and travel when time allows.  One of the most interesting places that I lived is Morocco - I spent time in a small town outside Rabat named Mehdiya Plage. I also lived Paris and I highly recommend the Dali Musuem as an off the beaten path Museum.
