I'm from Boston. I'm a Director of Client Services for a big research firm. Also a poet with a book called Two Star General. Married to Leslie Held, a costume designer and lecturer in the theater department at MIT. Two grown sons, one in a PhD program in Clinical Psych, the other finishing up a dual major in finance/psych. Like exploring new cities, going to museums, flea markets, junk shops, book stores, and really getting a flavor of a place. I speak some French, as it was my mother's native language. My French is quite rusty now, though I understand better than I speak.
