Staff Candidate
for the KPFT Local Station Board
KPFT deserves the best.

I am hoping to again serve on KPFT's LSB as I did for 6 years dating back to the early 90's.

Its time to encourage an environment that is collaborative and allows for the extension of good will, outreach and fund raising on our board.

My experience both at KPFT and professionally coupled with my education (degreed engineer and MBA) should be invaluable in helping to chart our path forward.

As a staff candidate I hope to represent my volunteer colleagues in the best way possible.
