About me

Gender Male
Introduction Born and raised in NYC, I'm 58 years old, happily married to Laura Dukess (27 years!), and have two wonderful boys, Ben (23) and Stephen (21). I'm a corporate attorney with my own practice (having done the big law, big corporation thing for many years) and a huge passion for biking. If you enjoy reading this blog, or are otherwise entertained or inspired by my trip, please consider supporting my favorite charity (OK, I'm also its Board Chair): I Challenge Myself, which since 2005 has been helping lower income high school students in the Bronx, Washington Heights and the Lower East Side develop leadership and workplace skills, as well as confidence and self-esteem, through endurance cycling training and rides, including a Century Bike Ride at the end of Spring semester.
