Creative, educated and intelligent, I get along well with co-workers, while maintaining an iron grip on production schedules, having never missed a deadline in over 20 years. Visually literate, I make sense of a story. Widely traveled all my life, I can relate to any culture. Widely read, I can relate to history, philosophy, religion, art and science, without prejudice. I like people in their infinite variety, find them the source of spiritual sustenance and never ending wonder.
