Why He Serves on the ZACC Board:
I serve with the ZACC Board because I love what the ZACC does. Our world is filled with complicated problems, and we need more art and music. I think people who make art and music bring unique abilities to address some of our biggest challenges, and I'm hopeful that if we re-work some of our priorities as a society, we might really like the results.
