I'm a former 8th grade spelling champion, which is intimidating to some people, but really I'm more of a quiet guy with a dry sense of humor -- more Jon Stewart than Jerry Seinfeld. By day I hang out with economists and business researchers, and work as a director of publishing at large consultancy. I like jazz. I like history. I like vintage sports cars and racing -- something very elegant about classic cars being driven instead of stared at, but I've also done and enjoy concours events. I love California. I'm a California native and Valley Guy by birth, but grew up in Cleveland before gratefully moving to San Diego in '95. More romantic than competitive, more Felix than Oscar, more Ritz Carlton than LL Bean. I go to the gym religiously to stay in shape -- it also helps me unwind from a very PC-centric job.
So... enough about me!
