Since I'm divorced and have never been a father, I'd like to include in this section that my mom is still alive at the age of 100 1/2. She lives in Palm Beach on the other coast of Florida, so it's real easy to get to see her. And I live with a wonderful cat, Suzanne.


B.A., University of Pennsylvania


I've been in the employment business, in one capacity or another, since 1968. I didn’t “work,” though, from 1978-1992. During those years, I volunteered at local non-profits and did a lot of writing. I had two career books published, plus wrote articles for several career newspapers. Since 1992, I’ve been writing resumes for executives across the country, and had a third book published in 2003.

Lifelong Hobbies:

Lifelong: Listening to classical music and opera, watching all kinds of sports, shooting pool.
Relatively new: writing, reading Shakespeare, playing the bagpipes.


Semi-retired since 2006. I continue to write resumes but also audit humanities courses at the University of South Florida, study Shakespeare on my own, and am learning how to play the bagpipes. I also enjoy bowling and shooting pool. I plan to do all these things so long as I can see, hear, move my fingers, and remember what it is that I’m trying to do. Indications are that my memory will be the first to go!

Did You Graduate From North Or South?

You sound like you have avoided all the stresses that inform my life, my being. A welcomed read. Thanks for sharing. My memory is very strong vision, my hearing are weakening significantly. Maybe I need alittle more sun and less Chicago winter.
