I was born in Ann Arbor, MI, where I also received my Computer Engineering degree (at U Mich).

Since leaving Ann Arbor I have lived in Colorodo (for a short ski-bum stint), Tampa, and Chicago. I have worked at several software and services companies, started one, and founded another (Parlano) out of its parent company's bankruptcy. I have also received an MBA from the Kellogg school of Northwestern University.

Some day I would like to live in Europe.

I am married with two kids: a boy and a girl. They keep me young and tired all at the same time. My beautiful wife keeps me sane.

I enjoy working with smart people, skiing, tennis, sailing, and most of all, spending time with my family.
