There is only
one corner of
the universe you
can be certain of improving and
this is your own self. Aldous Huxley

Know Thyself

I am the elder son of urban America parents who raised my brother and I in rural upstate New York. Why did they do that? 🙂 Since 1997, I am proud and happy to be living in New York City, which I feel is the greatest city in the world. After graduating from College, I spent four years as a military officer in the United States Army that included a tour of duty in Vietnam during the war. Those experiences largely shaped the person I became to be during the larger part of my adult life.

Following graduate school, I was a senior executive with several of the largest health care delivery systems in the United States. After retiring from a career in hospital and health care administration in 2006, I have devoted much of my life endeavoring to create a world that works for each and every person. Paramount to this effort is engaging people in an extraordinary conversation I have named The Last Conversation. I currently facilitate a group on facebook to that end. I will be moving the group to this site soon. In the meantime, you can learn more about it by searching The Last Conversation on facebook.

“…if I am not in the world simply to adapt to it, but rather transform it, and if it is not possible to change the world without a certain dream or vision for it, I must make use of every possibility there is not only to speak about my utopia, but also to engage in practices consistent with it.” ―Paulo Freire
