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 the Entrepreneurs Foundation, 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 a director for Capital Factory, a high-tech start up incubator, accelerator, co-working space in Austin with nearly 50,000 sq ft, 100 companies in the incubator and over 700 members. As the vice chair for federal relations at the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and as a senior adviser to Austin Mayor Steve Adler, I’m engaged politically. Primarily through EF’s Youth Entrepreneurship Programs, as a board member of the KDK-Harman Foundation and the Bazaarvoice Foundation and on the leadership committee for the Texas Education Grant Makers Advocacy Consortium, I stay engaged in Central Texas education.
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.
We consider Marfa, Texas, our second home. There, I serve on the boards of Marfa Public Radio and the McDonald Observatory.
