"I believe that the finest qualities of man can flourish only in free air – that progress made under the shadow of the policeman’s club is false progress, and of no permanent value." H.L. Mencken
I am a new and happy pilgrim to the great city of Petaluma, after a lifetime living in San Diego. I moved here to begin a new life with my fiancee Judy.
I have been a writer for the last 13 years - based in San Diego, where I grew up and graduated school.
I am a life-long (and currently suffering) fan of the Baltimore Orioles and Minnesota Vikings. I am an unapologetic fan of James Joyce's writing, John Coltrain's music, John Wayne's movies, single-malt scotch and cigars with friends.
