Community Activities

Co-Founder and Senior Facilitator, Karl Hess Club (1994–current)


A native of Pensacola, Florida, I have been a full time resident of Los Angeles since 1977, but I have spent many Summers since 1954 visiting my grandmother and uncles in the house my grandparents came to in 1946. That house, here in El Sereno, has been my home since 1994.

Professionally I worked in the title insurance industry as a searcher and as an examiner from 1977 through 2007. Since 2008 I have been semi- retired.

In 2000 I became involved in LA-32, our neighborhood council for the 90032 communities. I helped get the NC certified and later served briefly  as a board member and Chairman of the Land Use Committee.

I have been a dues paid member of the Libertarian Party of California since 1989 and have served in a number of capacities as an officer, convention delegate and activist, including as a candidate (State Assembly 1990, 1991, 1992 and U.S House 1996, 1998).

in addition to Party work, I have been active in the wider libertarian Movement in particular as a co-Founder and Senior Facilitator of the Karl Hess Club, a monthly independent libertarian supper club which has hosted after dinner speakers since 1994.
