I was born and grew up around Trenton NJ, USA.

Worked for 20 years as a computer programmer, first at Bell Labs, then in Silicon Valley.

Retired at age 43, and lived and cruised on a sailboat for 13 years, first in the USA and then in the Caribbean. (My final daily log file.)

Met a lady in Barcelona, and decided to give up cruising and live with her in Spain. Lived in Barcelona for about a year, lived in Jerez de la Frontera for more than a year, now living in Barcelona again. (My latest daily diary.)
