Salt Lake native, on my second life. Crazy about the mountains, snow skiing and my two granddaughters. Editor of RedThread, which gives me access to the brightest, most innovative thinkers, researchers around--namely the people that make the University of Utah. They think and do, I get the word out about their work. U alum. U staff. U fan.
