I am here with the love of my life, Maria, whom I am proud to say has consented to stay with me for 38 years. I was raised in small town Illinois and met Maria in Tennessee in grad school. We spent 20+ years by the SF Bay where I became a competent software practitioner and we learned what it is like to live in a beguiling and rapidly changing metropolis.

While trying since childhood to become an adult I’ve made music, read history and science, hiked and camped in the wild, traveled and talked with friends old and new. Now in addition I love watching our daughters grow into wonderful and playful people and working on this fascinating project we call Bull City Commons.

I love all the people in this community and so look forward to creating a 21st century intentional and caring village. And I am so excited to live in and be involved in Durham right now!
