I grew up in Stamford, CT and graduated from St Basil’s Preparatory School, Manhattan College and the University Of Connecticut School Of Law.
I worked more than 30 years in the financial services industry holding a variety of positions in group insurance, human resources, claim services and corporate administration. My final position was Senior Vice President and Corporate Secretary at HSB Group from which I retired in 2002 at age 55 (somewhat earlier than I had expected) following the acquisition of HSB by another corporation.
I enjoy being physically and intellectually active, and in particular, educational travel, sailing, yoga, guitar, and studying architecture, art, religion, history, music theory, geology, meteorology and Italian. In retirement I set out to discover what it means to be successfully retired. The result is my book: The Successful Retirement Guide. Check it out at my website.
