Grew up in Vermont, spent time in Ohio and Sweden, worked part-time as I paid my way through a BS program at UVM, got an engineering job in AZ for a year, then moved to Baltimore in 2000. Moved to the suburbs shortly after 9/11, but am thinking about getting back into City living.
No kids of my own, but I am fine with all sorts of youngsters. I don't put up with much sass, but they don't tend to mouth off to me much, so it's not usually an issue. Two years of teaching ski school at Smuggler's Notch for 3 to 11 year-old kids... 'nuff said?
