Where are you originally from?
My wife, Madeline, and I are natives of Carpinteria, California—a beautiful beach community, very close to Santa Barbara. I had been working with a small private health firm in Santa Barbara for 20 years. It was acquired by Bosch in 2003. My wife and I raised our three daughters in the Santa Barbara area. Finally our youngest got to a point, three years ago, where we said to ourselves, ‘Let’s try something new.’ I volunteered to take a position overseas, if one became available within Bosch. A position was created for me in Germany.

Art & Community

Where did you move from?
Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I was Director of The Diggs Gallery of Winston-Salem State University. Before that I was a corporate banker for five years, managing the northern Virginia and Washington D.C. territory for Wachovia.

What attracted you to Kalamazoo?
From my background and experience, I understand the impact the arts have on a person’s life. The arts enrich your experience and nurture our humanity. From a social service perspective, I wanted to use the arts as a way of adding something positive and beautiful and fulfilling and thought-provoking to people’s lives. I wanted to be able to do that in a way that made it accessible for everybody. The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (KIA) is such a place that really engages people from all sectors of the community.
