History reader, devoted runner, lover of music.
I am a long time resident of Seattle, where I did my undergraduate and graduate studies in mathematics at the University of Washington. My talented writer wife of 33 years and I met there as grad students, and we have been together ever since. We have two wonderful daughters, Natalie and Ana, both graduates of great liberal arts schools and both now working to move onto the next phases of their lives. We live in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle, unique for its attractions and early history, though I think few people today know that Greenlake Bar & Grill sits where Mayor Wood's cow use to graze, or that an electric trolley once ran around the lake.
In my professional life, I help attorneys market themselves using various online tools and venues. I was one of the first companies in Washington state to do this, going back to the early days of the World Wide Web. During these frenetic dot-com bubble years, I sold the Washington State Bar Association on the idea of a CLE on the Internet for attorneys, and despite initial skepticism these programs ended up being great successes. Imagine.
I have been a serious runner for 40 years, and follow a rigorous schedule of running and weight training that has allowed me to maintain my running weight from 30 years ago. My passion is history and travel, the last especially to places with historical or cultural significance from the past.
Wonderful daughters, a wonderful writer wife, and great health.
