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 entrepreneurs build successful corporate cultures 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) we produce plays, underwrite performance festivals and otherwise support art and conversations that build community. I’m a mentor at the Capital Factory and an in-coming board vice chair for the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce.
I am married to Steven Robert Tomlinson. We were initially attracted to each other for many reasons, not the least because we prioritize community, family and friends.
