Welcome to My Panda Paddle Page
I became "eco-lit" in 1970 during the very first Earth Day. My high school science teacher really helped me learn more about the concerns even back then. I went to UC Davis with a dual major of Environmental Studies & Computer Science
My career included stints with the Cal Air Resources Board, Cal Dept. of Wildlife and Aerojet Environmental. I now am self-employed in internet marketing and just launched a new division of my company BlazeYourBrand.com. One of my motto is "Be Calm, Paddle On"
And so, I am WAY excited about this "Panda Paddle" because it
- Melds two of my passions (environmental stewardship and business support)
- Let's me join up with a group of like-minded planetary citizens (it takes a village...)
- And by a HUGE quirk of serendipity, I will be on the island of Kauai on vacation (so (boat) loads of paddle opportunities!)
From August 12-21, I will join with nature lovers from all across the country as we paddle separately, but together, as part of World Wildlife Fund's Panda Paddle Virtual Event.
I would be grateful if you would lend your support by making a donation today. My long-time friend, Jamie Perry, will be creating a one-of-a-kind "Panda Paddle 2022" art piece that will be given away to one lucky supporter. Details to follow...
Thank you for helping me protect the natural world and all it gives us.
