I grew up on the East Side of Bridgeport, Connecticut, attended Edison and Hall elementary schools, and graduated from Warren Harding High School.
I have a B.A. in English, with a concentration in journalism and a minor in psychology, from Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven.
I’ve lived in various places around Fairfield County, Conn.; then in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia from 1999-2005, and in San Diego since 2006.
My significant other, Liz Segrè, and I have been together for 22 years. (Thanks, Susan Grover, for the photo!)
Our spare time revolves around hiking, biking, travel, dog rescue and our own dog, Ethel. We enjoy mid-century modern architecture, Scrabble, mixology, spending time in the desert town of Borrego Springs, and TV programs like Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley and House of Cards.
I’ve been a Yankee fan since 1966. That terrible year, the Yankees compiled a 70-89 record and finished last in the American League, 26 1/2 games out of first place.
