I spent my career as a civil rights trial lawyer at the Department of Justice and I now am a co-principal of a small commercial law firm. My prime focus in the last several years has been making a documentary film addressing the challenge faced by people with mobility disabilities in finding an accessible place to live. It is designed to convince the building industry that there is a substantial, but latent, demand for accessible housing that is not being met.
I have two married adult children and seven grandchildren. I love photography and I love to cook. I play golf and go biking. I like to travel and have been many places.
I had a long-term marriage which ended several years ago ago and I'm now looking for some wonderful woman who can fill out my life.
It has been a while since I indulged in reading novels, but I enjoyed the books about lawyers facing various challenges (e.g., John Grisham). I enjoy certain biographies if I am particularly interested in the person for some reason. I recently downloaded on my Kindle "Paris: A Love Story", a biographical novel by Kati Marton, but I am also reading Scott Berg's bio on Woodrow Wilson. My favorite book is "To Kill a Mockingbird" (as was the movie with Gregory Peck). My favorite music depends greatly on my mood--everything from classical to salsa to jazz (my all time favorite is Dave Brubeck). I admire certain artists and am always looking for incredibly talented people, and sometimes that is more important that the type of music they are performing. I love Broadway (and off-Broadway) shows and plays and have, ever since I read Moss Hart's "Act One" many, many years ago, I have wanted to write a play. I am at least doing that now.
