I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have a BA in Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh and a JD from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

I grew up in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh and have fond memories of Mineo’s Pizza. I moved to Washington after graduating from law school in 1979.

I enjoy, travel, photography and technology. For those old enough to remember, I owned an 8-track tape player. I never met a gadget I didn’t like. For the past ten years, I have relied mainly on Apple for my tech.

I share my ideas on my blog. I share my photos on SmugMug, Flickr and a separate site devoted to my black and white photography. I prefer not to mix color and black and white photograghs.

I share some of my black and white photos here with the Micro.blog community.
