Special Interests
My education (BS in economics, Phi Beta Kappa, U. Texas 1964 and Ph.D., U Michigan 1972) is in trade and international finance and I have 34 years of experience in conducting dialogue on a wide variety of economic policy issues with government officials on four continents. I possess excellent communications skills, both writing and public speaking (using notes, text, or Power Point) to relate successfully with people outside and inside government, including the media. I speak Spanish fluently, and some Bahasa Indonesia and Arabic. Teaching at the university level demonstrates communications skills as well. My professional competence and analytic skills, honed in numerous countries including residence in 6, has been recognized by my inclusion in the most recent Who’s Who in Economics. I have shown the necessary administrative and leadership ability to get things done in different political and social environments. I work easily in a team and, as a leader, I inspire trust across grade levels, gender, nationality, and areas of professional expertise. I have an excellent sense of humor that is very effective both as a communications tool and a conflict management device.
