I was born in Oakland, CA, went to school there, married Ellie in 1978 and honeymooned in the Virgin Islands where we fell in love with St. John. We purchased an apartment on St. John in 1980 and a home in 1997. I co-founded a temporary IT staffing business in San Francisco and sold the business in 1996. I stayed on for three years during the transition after which started spending our winters on St. John. I was on the board of a non-profit “Freedom from Hunger” for 15 years and the chairman for 4 years. I have been a docent at Annaberg for 20 years and am a volunteer for Friends of the Park for their winter seminar.
