Location Tacoma-Seattle, Washington, United States
Introduction Born in New Jersey and educated in New York, after practicing architecture, I lived in a zen temple in Korea, did a long stint on Wall Street as a Senior Broker, studied with a guru who lived with Maharishi in India, did a gigantic stint at a big box retailer in building materials. * Most recently was running a Cloud Computing start-up in NJ, but starting over here in Tacoma where people are very nice, and where--aside from out of mainstream urbanism--I love the weather. * Me? I try to be pretty straightforward in my conduct. In 2012 worked for a crazy big company, and wonder why, but what is it called, a market. * I am not easily forgotten. Vanity? Yes. But it is also true that the older I get, the less can I be ignored. I have things to say, and say them. Take it or leave it, I am who I am. I have paid my dues. I have done my time.

You can whistle and steam can whistle, so why do you sing in the shower?

I don't whistle. When I bathe, I try to clear my mind and relax, and enjoy the moment. Bathing is one of life's great pleasures.
