I grew up in Santa Fe in the 1950's and 60's.  I graduated from St. Mikes's in 1967. I served as Director of the New Mexico Records Center and Archives, Director of the Center for Southwest Research, UNM, and retired as Director of Research and Literary Arts at the National Hispanic Cultural Center of New Mexico.  Today, I am involved in the preservation of New Mexico's environment and cultural heritage. I volunteer for a number of organizations and I am particularly interested in working with young people.  I believe that the traditional values of NM and the rich heritage passed on by our ancestors is one of the most important ways to reach out to our young people and help eliminate many of the social, economic, environmental, and political problems created in the 21st century.  Family values, culture, tradition, respect for the Earth, spirituality, preservation of our natural resources and traditional knowledge must be passed on to the next generation to help them cope with the world today.  I believe that it is the responsibility of every adult to mentor and nourish the minds of the young.  I enjoy flyfishing, bow hunting, farming, and the wonders of nature.

Mision y Convento, Plaza de Espanola

In 2003-2005 I had the opportunity to work on the permanent exhibition for the Mision y Convento at the Plaza de Espanola. The curator for the exhibition was Clare Villa an artist from Los Luceros, New Mexico. Richard Guzman of Truchas, New Mexico painted the murals depicting  the history of New Mexico.. Richard Federici from Santa Fe, New Mexico was the photographer. I provided historical research, archival preservation, photo documentation, and the historical text for the exhibition. Mayor Richard Lucero was the Director for the project.
