My story, briefly

This flattering photo of me and my wife Karen was taken a few years ago (2011). I'm a little grayer now.

I have worked a variety of jobs including psychiatric counselor in a methadone clinic, information technology strategy consultant, Director of Admissions for a psychiatric hospital, founder of a web development company and Wall Street day trader, among others. I graduated from Brown University with  a concentration in psychology and later obtained an MBA from Boston College. So psychology and business inevitably crop up in my writing.

I am a supporter of animal rights, ecology and conservation causes. I enjoy playing piano, poker and golf, and traveling as much as possible. I grew up in Westport, Connecticut and now live in New York City with my wife, the artist Karen Loew. Traps is my second novel.
