The coat of arms was conceived by my father. His great grandfather was a counter revolutionary against Napoleon III (the sword). He was also a baker, thus the pretzel. Finally, the bee is a pun. I designed the graphic using Corel Draw and had it engraved on a magnum bottle of wine for my father's eightieth birthday.
I live in Huntington Beach, California. Huntington Beach is south of Los Angeles, in Orange County. Although I live in a "beach" city, I am not along the waterfront. Still, the weather here never gets too cold or too hot.
For recreation, I enjoy photography, listening to jazz, playing golf, and going ocean sailing. I also bake sourdough bread. In fact, I once entered it in the Orange County Fair and won first place.
My wife, Susan, and I have two grown children and four Maine Coon cats. Our garden is owned and defended by Anna's and Allen's Hummingbirds.
Look in the Photo Album for pictures of these areas of interest.
I received a bachelors of science degree in Industrial Administration from Yale. (There was no computer sciences program when I went to Yale University. The "IA" degree let me combine studies in computers with actually getting a degree.)
After some years working I went back to school and obtained an MBA from the University of California at Irvine (I did this while working full time. My family hardly saw me those years.)
