I am both intellectual and gregarious. I would consider myself affable and social but also knowledge seeking and extremely curious to understand why things work the way they do.
I think no one should be held responsible for anything they do not have authority over AND
vice versa, that no one should have authority over anything they are not responsible for.
I enjoy reading science fiction and tramping in the mountains.....I just recently cimbed Mt. Katahdin - the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail
I was born in the USA and have lived most of my life in New Zealand.
I have citizenship in both countries but consider myself "Kiwi" - this is where I live and and where I obtained my degree.
I have spent the preponderance o my working life working with and analysing market research data in both small local and large multi-national companies.
