I'm a bicycle commuting blogger, writer, marketer, and co-author of the Bike to Work Guide: What You Need to Know to Save Gas, Live Green, Get Fit (Adams Media, 2009) I'm a Massachusetts native (yes, Red Sox fan, it goes without saying) currently living in Sacramento. I'm employed as the marketing and communications director at the College of Engineering at UC Davis. My wife, Marianne, and I enjoy hiking, bicycling, swimming, snowshoeing, cuisine, reading, and spending time with our canine companion Kiva the Siberian husky. Save for "The Daily Show," I don't watch a lot of TV. I enjoy independent cinema and French films (I'm nearly fluent, thanks to high school in New England), baseball, theatre, music, reading, history, and travel. We are a quiet, mature, responsible couple, who enjoy the outdoors.
