Greetings! I would lbe honored to entertain this wonder opportunity! I am Kai Tabor’s mother and an avid chess enthusiast. I’ve travelled extensively for work(former international flight attendant based in Honolulu),former fashion rep. for McCall Pattern Company, and now in New Smyrna Beach,Florida. I’m almost a private pilot. I have basic French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandatin language proficiency. Also learning Japanese of late. I can get the certifications you require, as I was well acquainted with the T.D.’s for 15 years! I have a B.S. in Marketing/Management, with minors in Communication and Psychology; and almost my M.F.A. in apparel design from Washington University in St.Louis. Actually it was a special M.F.A./PH.D. experimental program where I was hand picked to attend. I worked in film/television for many years. . I know Harvey Lerman fairly well. John Ludwig’s family are good friends as well. They can all be used as references, ie Howard Ludwig(nuclear physicist).
