About Me
My wife and I are retired. She spent most of her working career as a school psychologist. I worked for 35 years as a defense attorney (and taught courses at the law school , which is a 12 minute walk from here). I have also been in the Peace Corps in Venezuela and volunteered for a year on the Wounded Knee Defense Team. We have done extensive work over the years remodeling and restoring our 100 year old historic home. We raised four lovely children who are all now in the sciences: medicine, engineering and computers. Our daughter (PhD/med school) and son in law (Dr) still live in Ann Arbor. Now we are looking to travel extensively, starting with an extended ski trip and then a long trip in Europe.
