I grew up in Connecticut, went to college in Illinois, then moved to Northern California, where I met my wife. We raised two children and numerous dogs, cats and horses while living in Sonoma County. In 1987 we moved to Sarasota, attracted by the wonderful mix of cultural opportunities and natural surroundings. Sarasota has three professional theater companies, two with multiple stages, its own symphony, ballet company and opera, as well as a performing arts center and numerous small clubs offering all types of music. It also has great beaches, boating and fishing, and access to wonderful natural resources, including Myakka River State Park - the largest state park in Florida.
My wife and I owned horses for thirty years, and live in an equestrian community, where everyone has at least 5 acres, yet we are only 30 minutes from downtown and Siesta Beach (named the best beach in the country in 2012).
I enjoy gardening, cooking, canoeing, birding, fishing and playing tennis.
