I'm an ex New Yorker and I have been living in Amsterdam since 2000. I first came here in 1971 and I fell in love with the place. I decided to return one day, and here I am!
I worked for more than ten years as a forensic psychiatric social worker in the NYC prison system. These days I'm retired and get to hang out all day, doing...whatever :-)
I'm fairly well traveled. I admit to having led a very exciting and interesting life. I'm one of the people who brought you the 60's - and I remember most of it. I lived in Greenwich Village in 1963-5 and got to meet and hang out with everybody who was anybody. I was part of the avant-garde, and later became what the media called the underground. I lived on Ibiza in the late 60's early 70's, where I was partners in the second (at the time) vegetarian restaurant in all of Spain, called the Double Duck. My partner wrote a book about it, called Sirens Feast an Edible Odyssey. I'm also a practicing NIchiren Buddhist since 1976 and a member of the SGI.
I look forward to welcoming you to my happy home.
