February, 1958
Bio: 
Born in 1958, I grew up on welfare in Los Angeles, and lived in several foster homes before my 18th birthday, when my mother died. I have always had an acute awareness of the disparity between the haves and have-nots, and wish to help change that. I studied journalism in college and wrote for several newspapers. I also worked as a DJ on a popular L.A. punk radio station. For the last 25 years I have owned and run my own business providing live sound for music and public events. I have never married nor had children of my own, but I have worked part time for the last 16 years for the local Teen Center.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have worked the past 16 years part time for the Bainbridge Island Teen Center. It is an after-school hang out place for teens. Many of my strongest relationships are now with these kids. I have taught ESL in Ghana, W. Africa. I have worked at an orphanage in Calcutta, India. I have volunteered as camp counselor in Washington State for summer camp for kids ages 8-12. I helped build a medical clinic out of recycled materials in the Sinai Desert in Israel.
Education:
