Prior experience:

*Contemporary Music
*Telecommunications in Education 
* Social and Environmental Problem Solving
* Equality and Power in Relationships
* Creating a Virtual L.A.
2) Ran for Co-Governor of California on a proto-Green platform and promoting the idea that all elected offices should be gender-balanced.
3) Serve as Co-President and research director for Experimental Cities, Inc., a nonprofit organization created in 1971 to seek positive alternatives
to social and environmental problems in cities. Many of the concepts
formulated there can be found in the Green Party. 
ECI is currently organizing demonstration projects to test a means of expanding the use of wind energy to low wind areas.
My hope for the GP is that it will provide a viable alternative to the
existing structure; one that will make sense to enough people to save the planet and ourselves.
