I enrolled at the League in 1985 for sketch and later to study watercolor with Mario Cooper, Joseph Rossi, Dale Meyers, Frederick Wong, and Terence Coyle. Like many of you, I love the League and want to see it continue in the tradition and spirit under which it was founded. The direction the Board has taken for 10 years demonstrates the need for change. That is why I am a candidate this year - to help redirect the League back to where it lived and thrived for all these many years before it was repurposed from its intended mission. My degree is in accounting, my business background includes oversight of a commercial multi-property realty holding company.
