Born in western Pennsylvania, raised in the 60s in the sarcasm belt of north-central New Jersey, graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Education, I moved to San Francisco in 1977 (partly to see what it might be like to live someplace where the people wore flowers in their hair - someplace very different from what I had so far been accustomed to). After surviving significant initial culture shock, I spent most of the next two decades in various parts of the pacific northwest, and loved it. I Currently reside in Charlottesville, Virginia where until recently I was a respiratory therapist in a children's hospital.

But here also is chivalry and hope to inspire us all.
