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, Connecticut; 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 24 years. (Thanks, Susan Grover, for the photo!)
Our spare time revolves around hiking, biking, travel, dog rescue and our own dog, Ethel. Liz is also very into rowing! We enjoy mid-century modern architecture, Scrabble, mixology, spending time in the desert town of Borrego Springs and in Anza-Borrego State Park, and TV programs like Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, House of Cards and reruns of The Andy Griffith Show.
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.
