I am a retired executive from AT&T Bell Laboratories. During my career I also worked in the public sector as Executive Director of the Tri-State Planning Commission where I worked with the governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and the mayor of New York City. I have hosted the WCBS TV program "Sunrise Semester" and while in college worked with John F. and Robert Kennedy. I am a published author and have extensive experience in government and the American political system. As such I am a student of American history. As a writer I am also well versed in literature and the arts. I am a graduate in political science from Williams College, rated by U.S. News and World Report as the #1 rated liberal arts college in the nation. I have spent the last five years teaching at a local high school primarily in history and English.
