MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSONS:
"In my career, I would have to say Greg Poggy, the former director of the graduate program at Southern Methodist University, who’s now at the theatre department at the University of Michigan. He is very helpful and influential. Also, the former board members at the Dallas Historical Society, especially Bob Clyde, an accountant who was extremely helpful."
LAST BOOK READ:
"The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger
by Marc Levinson."
WORDS THAT DESCRIBE ME:
"Analytical, stoic, strategic, and I get along with most people."
WHERE MY FIELD/INDUSTRY IS HEADED:
"NPower tries to bring technology advances to the nonprofit sector. A lot of what we try to do at the right point is pull technology into a lot of education and change practices, and another is looking at the economics of technology to see when we can push the price down or spur adoption in the nonprofit sector. The emergence of online tools enables a lot of things to happen outside of the wall, or remotely. It can help a large number of organizations to have stable systems. You can do so much without being on site."
FAVORITE TECHNOLOGICAL GADGET:
"Anywhere next to the water."
"Reading, playing with my daughter, food."
MY HIDDEN TALENT:
"My undergrad degree was in music theory and composition, and it doesn’t come up in everyday life, so I’d say my music background."
HOW I WANT TO BE REMEMBERED:
"That I had some positive influence. And that I had an effect and positive impact on how nonprofits use technology."
