About Community Matters: This is my personal blog. It is not intended to reflect the views of any organization with which I’m affiliated – there are a lot of them. Some of my postings are quite serious, others are completely silly, most are somewhere in between.
Today, I run a foundation established by and for entrepreneurs which practices disruptive innovation in philanthropy, helps make nonprofits profitable and promotes entrepreneurship. And, I serve as board president and CEO of two NPR affiliates – Marfa Public Radio and KXWT in Midland/Odessa. Through our family fund (ABPorter.org) we produce plays, underwrite performance festivals and otherwise support art and conversation that build community.
I am married to Steven Robert Tomlinson. We were initially attracted to each other for many reasons, not the least because our communities, families and friends are most important. We are partners in every way.
