Grew up on Los Angeles (on the west side) and lived there until I was about 28. Until my mother's death in 2010 I went back twice a year. Graduate of Hamilton High School and then Cal State Los Angeles.
Then moved to Maryland (College Park area) for a year to go to school, then to Philadelphia (Center City) for a few years, then across the river to Collingswood, NJ for a few more years. In 1987 I moved to the NJ suburbs, right around New York City, for work and have stayed ever since.
I'm a computer programmer working for a global bank in New York City and commute in evey day by bus
