Introduction From published letters to editors and blogging I have been recognized as "insightful" by a Presidential campaign, three Pulitzer recipients and also two most prestigious national magazines. Years ago I had a prescient political play on teaching the Ten Commandments in a public school setting produced by a Tony recipient director to a nightly full house at the Berkshire Theater Festival's Unicorn Theater. Arthur Miller attended the closing party and was nicely laudatory. I've also had a few letters-to-editors published, both politically serious letters and more creatively whimsical letters, for which I receive some friendly local attention. In a past life as a young hippy who signed on for the first employment I was offered in NYC, I inexplicably end up as a ultra fast track international investment banker. I negotiated on the order of two billion dollars in loans to companies and governments, East and West, and the oil industry learning much from being in the 'belly of the beast', as they say. There I also met quite a number of finance and politics house hold names, both Kings and knaves in the process.
Interests Snark. Snidery. A certain "ripe strawberry". Matching elusive truths to stylish phrases. Being bemused. Scratching my head.
