Hi... I am semi retired from a long career in finance at several companies, including a very large health insurance company. I currently teach finance at UCLA.
In addition to my professional career, I am a musician. I have a grand piano in my house, and I have recorded two full length CDs.
I have been an avid runner for much of my adult life and I have completed 51 full marathons all over the U.S. and also in Canada, Italy, Greece and Spain.
I have climbed many major mountains around the world, and have been attempting to tag all of the 'Seven Summits' (the highest peak on each of the world's seven continents) I have tagged six of the seven peaks, and reached about 24,000 feet on Mt. Everest. So if I can go back to Everest before I get too old and tag the summit, I will have joined a very exclusive club!
I am single and live in this big house by myself, except for a student tenant that lives in my guest house. I look forward to meeting people from around the world and having them enjoy the comforts of home when they travel.
