I am 70 years old and have retired from careers as a philosophy professor and a software engineer. I am now a Visiting Scholar in philosophy at UCLA. I live in Malibu with my wife, Pam Dunne-Gardner. She has 6 children from before our marriage, 2 of whom live with us. We also have an Irish setter. I am a great fan of classical music, opera, and jazz, especially from the swing era. I also like movies and see 1 or 2 each week. I have travelled extensively in the US, Canada, and western Europe.
