About the Author

Born in Manhattan during WWII, Peter C. Goldmark, Jr. has lived most of his life as a New Yorker. He works as a global strategy consultant with foundations and other organizations seeking to address the huge challenges that confront us in this moment in history. As a creature of public life, Peter has run foundations, newspapers, and government agencies, including the Rockefeller Foundation and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. He was awarded the French Legion d'Honneur, the French equivalent of a knighthood, for his work as CEO and Publisher of the International Herald Tribune, based in Paris. Peter began writing poetry at the age of 40, though mostly privately, as a vehicle for making sense of the world. He currently lives near Prospect Park in Brooklyn with his wife Aliette. www.haikusfornyc.com
