Introduction Family: Married to Debbie, the most interesting and insightful person I know, since 1985. We had four children; the three youngest are Ben (born 1989), Shalom (born 1991), and Shayna (born 1995). Our oldest son Aaron, born 1987, died suddenly on May 16, 2005 only three days after a massive brain tumor was discovered. Background: Grew up in Silver Spring, MD. Jewish day school and yeshiva education through obtaining smicha (rabbinic ordination) at Yeshiva University and a MS in computers, both in 1985. Politics: Self-described "radical moderate" - instinctively suspicious of all politicians, anyone with an axe to grind, and points-of-view that are illogically far left or right of center. Interests: See rest of profile.

How tall would you be if you had never cut your fingernails?

Unfortunately, just as short as I am now! (but I would be *huge* for a Hobbit!)
