My self-summary
I grew up in the suburbs of New York City. My father created ad campaigns on Madison Avenue for the movie industry, so I guess That makes me the child of Mad Men. My tribe is the New York Jewish non-religious socialist artsy intellectual self-deprecating crowd. Every summer our extended family gathers for a week-long re-union on Fire Island, off of Long Island, where there are plenty deer and bicycles and 30 miles of beach, but no cars. This is where my roots are. I spent some years in Berkeley and Boston and Woodstock and Portland and Seattle before finally moving to LA to marry a woman who was living there. And here I settled.
What I’m doing with my life
My career has been in left-wing politics. Currently, I am a leader of a large, progressive public sector labor union in Southern California. Other than that, I hang out with friends, my sons (who are living with their mother in Venice), and my Bull Terrier, Dino. My marriage ended 12 years ago (well, technically/legally we separated 12 years ago). Since then I have had several meaningful romantic relationships, two of which originated online.

After spending the last 25 years in Venice/Santa Monica I moved up to Topanga Canyon last year. I love to walk on the trails or at the beach, with or without Dino. I enjoy the cultural culture stuff that LA has to offer. Last night, for example, I was at the Hollywood Bowl - one of my favorites - for the Wilco/Joanna Newsome concert.

On Sunday mornings I play basketball in Santa Monica with a group of mostly 50 and even 60-something doctor and lawyer types. Then it's off to get bagels.
I’m really good at
I pride myself on my range: I am good on the basketball court and at the chess board and with words, especially rhymes. I am a sometime poet and quirky white rapper.

I wish I was a better father.
