in his own words...
I'm retired from a 30-year career as a diplomat/lawyer at the State Department. I'm separated and in process of divorce. I have one grown son, who lives separately in DC, has several interesting jobs, and is a true intellectual -- majored in Classics at Oberlin. An all-round great kid, who can discourse on just about anything -- the more esoteric the better. I have lived in several places abroad, and have traveled extensively: Europe, Russia, China, Middle East. I have studied a number of foreign languages, and am most fluent in German and Hebrew. I love studying new languages -- and improving my existing ones, including English. I have a very European outlook on the world. I am first-generation American. My parents were from Germany -- refugees from Hitler. I feel very comfortable and at home in Europe. I am not "rich", but financially comfortable, with a good US government pension, health benefits for life, an income property in Georgetown, investments. I have no debts, aside from a home mortgage. I am a type "A" -- passionate about many things, practically all things, really. My special outdoor passion is sailing. I’ve done a lot, in interesting parts of the world: Northern Europe, Turkey. I am proficient in the basics, but need training in the technical aspects (electrical and engine systems, electronics, meteorology, etc.) -- before I make the big move to buy my own boat, and perhaps sail it across the Atlantic (an dream I have toyed with for years.) Most people consider me an intellectual. I am interested in virtually everything (professional sports excepted.) I cannot recall the last time I was bored–other than in a roomful of boring people–which unfortunately happens easily in Washington. I have studied many things, spent many years in college, attended graduate school, then law school. I am passionate also about music--from Bach to the Stones. I was a flower child of the 60’s. At heart I have never changed.
