About Me
I returned to Cambridge not long after graduating from Harvard College and in 1976 purchased a two-bedroom condominium one block from the campus to house myself and a business that I ran before taking a job with an international NGO in Holland in 1988, where I worked until my retirement in 2013. I traveled for several years after that before returning to the Cambridge condo, where I lived outside of the winter months. I was in Costa Rica when the COVID-19 lockdown went into effect, and as of now (April 2020) do not plan on returning, at least in the near future. Anyone wanting or needing to live close in to Harvard Square would do well to check on the availability of this unit.
