- Charlotte And Bob's Airbnb Symbol
I'm a writer who works in my home studio and also provides support and community contacts for art projects. I'm engaged to Bob, an innovation management consultant and community media activist has his office and home at Art House as well. Getting married this winter!
We enjoy sharing this large, peaceful space with other artists or those who want to explore their artistic potential or love being in a home that is filled with generations of artworks by family and well-known artists/ friends.
We're active, optimistic, like conversations but are not intrusive. We don't inject ourselves into your activities without invitation or wander into your room and start talking. In short: We respect your privacy but are up for enjoying your company.
Solo, I've spent many years continuing a family tradition of hosting artists,dancers,writers,musicians and adventurers.
I was an art critic and arts/food writer in Tucson for 15 years and also worked as a Master Poet with the Arizona and Texas Commissions on the Arts Poet-in-the-Schools programs. My best gig was Poet-in-Residence for Galveston Island.
My first full-length book of poetry, "Stealing The Dog's Prozac" was released by Press 53 two years ago.

Bob is a serial innovator and entrepreneur. He’s been an actor in and advisor to companies, agencies, and individuals seeking innovation competence in the public, private, and NGO sectors.
Most recently, Bob co-founded and chaired Atelier Tomorrow AB (ATAB), a think-tank headquartered in Malmö, Sweden.
Over the last six years, he's worked on several pioneering Scandinavian projects including Eksploria, a “theme park of the future”; DESINOVA, an extensive examination of optimal relationships between business innovators and designers, for the Danish Chamber of Commerce; and the Nordic Clearinghouse for Service Innovation.
Early on in his career, Bob served as Principal Consultant (policy analyst and strategist) with the California State Assembly, working mainly on telecom and information policy issues. During hearings in 1982-83, he coined the term, “electronic commerce.” And Bob wrote and managed to passage California’s unique Universal Telephone Service Act, the Electronic Commerce Act, and the Personal Information Integrity Act (not enacted).
He has three published books — Municipal Control of Cable Communications (Praeger 1977), An “Open” Approach to Information Policymaking (Ablex 1989), and an anthology, Information Design (MIT Press, 2000).
Bob comes equipped with a passport, the Tao Te Ching, and when near water, bodysurfing fins.
His motto is "The Future: live it or live with it."--Firesign Theater
