In my professional life, I’m a business-to-business marketing executive with two plus decades of life sciences/health care industry experience. I lead the marketing department at a group purchasing and technology company in Florham Park, NJ.
In my leisure time I partake in a number of community oriented activities – e.g. I’m involved in the Danish American Society, the American Scandinavian Society, the American Scandinavian Foundation, the British Schools & Universities Club (former board member), university associations (both Cambridge and Copenhagen), the Amateur Comedy Club, and my community garden (Dias Y Flores on 13th Street).
I also support the work of close friends who are artists (like Graham Elliott, currently about to open exhibit an exhibition at Northern Lights gallery) and others including Jeffrey Cyphers Wright (an accomplished maker of collages) and Andrew von Morisse (figurative and landscape paintings and lithographs).
This interest runs in the family – for example, my maternal grandfather in his youth befriended and supported the up and coming Danish painters (landscapes, figurative art) of his generation, and I’m honored to be the steward of his collection of their juvenilia.
