About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Journalist, procrastinator
Location Murphys, California
Introduction I live in California's Sierra Nevada south of Tahoe and north of Yosemite. After living above the snow line for five years we recently moved to the wine and Gold Rush town of Murphys. A ski resort is uphill, our sailboat 100 miles downhill. I retired in 2004 to travel, read, write, learn more music, avoid haircuts and wearing ties, and write family history. I was a journalist for over 40 years in five states. I'm a native of Atlanta, and my children and grandchildren are nearby. I was raised in Mobile and miss gumbo. I am a politically independent guitar-picking Christian anti-war Army veteran tree-hugger.
