Bio

It is my privilege to have been a member of the Executive Committee for the very first Board of Directors—and have been a Board member for multiple terms.  I look forward to collaborating on the creation of our new LA Section to expand our members’ creative and commercial opportunities in new areas of art, business and technology.
