Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I am an American who has lived and worked abroad continuously since January 1991. My experience includes working to address hunger, poverty and unemployment, promoting self-help.

Since 1973, as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in the Dominican Republic, I have tried to involve individuals, leaders, NGOs and business leader in strategy development and encourage coordination with civil society and local governance to ensure programs fulfil community needs. My personal philosophy has involved targeting support on selected programs that are innovative, sustainable and which produce tangible results. I believe programs that bring together local communities and organisations in dynamic partnerships significantly increase the scope for effectiveness of projects. The wealth of experience that I possess has helped me to identify targets, possible barriers to success, plan for self-sufficiency, measure and evaluate progress, and find positive attributes that may have potential to be replicated in other areas.

Now that I have retired, I am particularly interested in contributing to American understanding of the world we live in. I believe in the American entrepreneurial spirit and desire to work on creating business and job opportunities both here and abroad.
