How long have you been folding?

Learning the "paper cup" happened back in the misty "Dawn of Time" (before the Invention of Dirt), but my serious Origami began in Junior High (we call it "Middle School" now), so I'd say in the late 1960's.

What is your favorite Model to fold?

I tend towards the Geometric / Modular part of the Origami "spectrum". I'm not "married" to any one particular favorite model.

What would you like to learn how to fold?

No answer yet

Share with us a personal story about origami. (first time folding, what interested you in folding, etc)

For me, it's a series of "tangents". From: Math ... Math Puzzles ... Recreational Mathematics ... "Mathematical Games" articles in "Scientific American Magazine" ... back-issues & collected articles by Martin Gardner ... Lillian Oppenheimer ... etc.

Introduction

I've met Sok before, at some of the "AMNH" monthly meetings, & at OUSA's NYC Conventions. Mostly, it's because he asked me to join, & I felt I could be useful.

What Doug C. is saying about this Meetup Group

The same way that insects cross-pollinate flowers, creative people can inspire still further creativity in each other by sharing what they've learned &/or discovered.
