I have been active in politics and public policy all of my adult life. I'm an avid runner and writer.
My vision is to seek new opportunities to appreciate life though not bound by tradition and custom.
Interests: Ancient Near Eastern History, which includes Egyptology and Biblical history.
Favorite music: Hall and Oates, Sister Hazel, Natalie Merchant and John Mellencamp.
Favorite tv shows: See my statement below about movies.
Favorite movies: I don't find too many movies where the writers and directors assume they have an intelligent audience.
Favorite books: I read nonfiction mostly in the area of my interests as noted above. When I go for fiction, I find Robert B. Parker books most appealing.
Education: Ph.D in Biblical Studies
