I’m an emeritus professor, retired from Kent State University where I taught for 26 years. My university research and my work in the real world has been to figure out how to make it safe for people in groups to say what is on their minds. When that happens, good things get done. So I have served as a facilitator to public groups, especially governments and NGOs. I focus on the process so the group members are able to focus on the content. My first photography workshop – and the inception of when I began thinking seriously about capturing images in a camera – took place the same week in 2008 when Barack Obama was elected President of the United States. I live in Santa Fe, NM . firstname.lastname@example.org. 505.954-1601.My passion these days is figuring out how to make photographs that the viewer and I care about.
