in his own words...

Idealist working to keep our state and city great, consultant working to bridge countries and cultures, writer working to get the crap out of my writing, all while working to have as much fun as I can with smart, witty, thoughtful friends. A fantastic thing about my life is I have the chance to meet amazing people and do amazing things. Downside is... not a helluva lot of free time. But when I have free time, I love relaxing with a bracing sail to a beautiful place, mixing drinks at my club, whipping up a tasty meal, and dishing everything that's going on. And that's where you'd come in. I'm not a journalist as a primary occupation, but if you like the beauty and excitement of our bay, you may have read my On the Water Front column in the SF Chronicle, or my writing in Fortune and SAIL magazines. As my primary occupation, I have my own public affairs consulting business focusing on international economic development. It builds on a career that started in the international branch of state government, a chunk running an international nonprofit, then a stretch heading international policy at a big corporation, and now consulting on my own. Tough, tough times these days to run a consulting business, but what I've done is all mine, and the biggest accomplishment is heading up the major Asia Pacific summit meetings with Hillary Clinton in San Francisco in September. I'll love spending time with you if you're smart, have a global view, are adventurous, and have patience with how screwy my schedule is and how distracted I can become when working through challenging projects. Well, and hopefully you like sailing. Feeling a bit of America's Cup fever ain't bad either.
