My wife and I came to Portland in 1989, and have loved being here. We have three children. I grew up in Edmonton (Canada), and studied at The Univ. of Alberta, Univ. of British Columbia, Hebrew Univ. of Jerusalem, Touro College (NY) and Technion - Israel Institute of Technology (Haifa). When I get free time I love time with our family on our patio, and making canes and walking sticks for patients. I include music and cars amongst my other interests.
