After 17 years with the University and an additional 18 with the University Foundation I fully retired on Jan 1, 2010. I enjoyed working and have equally enjoyed retirement. I continual to write professionally and still write grant applications but now work "pro-bono" with non-profit organizations.
I have been a wood sculptor for most of my life and since retirement I have had time to add clay sculpturing. I most often work in human form with some abstracts pieces. For the last two years I have helped direct the Foster City Residents’ Art Show at the city’s 3 day Annual Arts & Wine Festival.
The highlights in my life are my wife and family, travel, exercise, reading, and community activities.
Life is good!
Have continued to work as a part-time training grant director, San Jose State University Foundation and as a grant writing trainer and mentor for Alliance 2000, a program out of the University of New Mexico. I am active in the School of Education Alumni Association and serve on the SJSU President's Council.
I enjoy travel, reading, walking, community activities and my family.
