I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. I have fond memories of the city including Mineo’s Pizza in Squirrel Hill. I am grateful for the education I received at the University of Pittsburgh where as an undergraduate I majored in Political Science. I graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences in 1976 and then went on to Pitt Law. After graduating from the law school in 1979, I moved to Washington and served for more than forty years as a career civil servant in the Federal government.

I’m now happily retired. I enjoy documenting my life in Washington, DC and when I travel. My photographic portfolio is available here. I also share photos on Flickr and Instagram.

Washington is a beautiful city. If you’re planning a trip to the nation’s capital you can find food for thought for your trip here.

Paris is a city I have loved for more than forty years. I visit as often as possible. I offer suggestions for visiting Paris here.

As a child of Holocaust survivors, Holocaust remembrance and education are important to me. I support the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. I also share news about the Holocaust here and on X (formerly Twitter).

I hope you enjoy what you find here and come along for the ride.
