Grew up in Bawlamer. Work in San Francisco. I am a "doer" who believes everyone should contribute directly and that "pure managers" are dinosaurs. I used to be a journalist and remain hopelessly in love with well-crafted prose. I lived in Hawaii for many years and still surf there whenever possible. My kids say I am embarrassing. That's good. If you aren't embarrassing somebody, you aren't having enough fun.
