I was born in Michigan and came to live in San Francisco in the mid-70's and have lived here since - except for an 18 month period that I spent traveling in Australia, southeast Asia, Japan, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Israel, Greece, and parts of Europe. I currently work in an administrative office in the University of California system which manages research grants. Prior to that, I had an extensive work history in employment services for low income people, working with counties and private non-profits. I am due to retire in the near future and intend to use much of my time to pursue my lust for travel. Recent trips have included Peru, China, Italy, Brazil, and Patagonia. I have hiked extensively (US and Canadian Rockies, the Olympic Rain Forest, the Himalayas in India and Nepal, and the Andes. I am married (28 years) to a wonderful Chinese woman and have a 27 year old son living in Brooklyn who is struggling to become a men's fashion designer.
