San Francisco Bay Area

Historian ... photographer ... runner ... writer ... reader of history, politics, classics and the occasional detective novel

My family moved to the San Francisco Bay Area from Salt Lake City, Utah in 1956 when I was three years old. Dad, mom, my maternal grandmother, me and a mutt named Puddles.

I share a house in the Bay Area town of Hercules with my wife who I married in 1981, my daughter, my good friend Scott, an overweight Labrador Retriever named Chloe and a manic hyperactive Gordon Setter named Lexi.
