I was the film critic for ArtWeek in San Francisco. I went on to write about film for The Boston Globe and for Maine Public Radio.
I am also one of the owners of a company that has developed a new technology for making bricks. We are building houses in Egypt.
I have a special affinity for the sound of French, German, Japanese, Italian, Russian, and Portuguese. I was director of a foreign language school in Cambridge.
