As a husband, father and grandfather of ten I am concerned about the social order of our country. Aspects of it harm us, causing unnecessary suffering. We do not have to live this way. I propose we change our social order peacefully in appropriate ways.
I was born in 1950 in St. Louis where my wife and I still live. I graduated from the Honors Program of Saint Louis University, Phi Beta Kappa. I worked for many years in the life insurance industry. Since 1992 I have worked in the nonprofit sector. Since 1997 I have been president of Charitable Foundation USA. We are a neutral administrator of charitable trusts, donor advised funds and endowments. I am past-president of the St. Louis Planned Giving Council.
