I am the youngest of three children and was born in Washington D.C. in 1945. Prior to moving to Bedford Mass in 1957 we lived in Kensington MD, Long Island NY, and Moorestown NJ.

My sister Liz and her husband Pete (who makes his own wine) live in Coupeville, Washington which is located on Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound. I have two nephews - Lars in San Francisco and USAF Major Eric in Denver, Colorado. In nearby Clinton Conn resides my brother.

After graduating from Bedford High School in 1963, I attended Boston State Teachers College. In 1968 I graduated from Chamberlayne Junior College. Then my career in banking operations started at Shawmut Bank. Shawmut merged with Fleet bank, which was bought by Bank of America. After forty years in the world of finance I retired in Nov. 2008.

I enjoy reading, travel, dining out with good friends, playing games on the computer and community service
