What lessons have you learned along the way that you'd like to pass on to current Reed students?

Learn as deeply and widely as you can, explore all your major interests.

Know thyself, learn to think for yourself (almost a given at Reed).

Be ready to adapt to radically changing life circumstances and opportunities.


In what ways you think you can help Reed students?

Having had nine careers, I think I could help students learn to react creatively to an ever more rapidly changing,& challenging, environment, while also continuing to pursue their central interests.

What else should students know about you? (e.g., volunteer engagement, avocations, interests)
