I grew up in East Los Angeles and, after serving in the U.S. Army, attended and graduated from California State University at Los Angeles. I moved to Berkeley in 1965 to work with the Mayor, City Manager and City Council on issues of the day. I worked on Montgomery Street for E.F. Hutton and retired from Morgan Stanley forty years later. Married to Martha Hoover, I raised a daughter in the Russian Hill neighborhood. Looking for engaging activities post retirement, I discovered two terrific organizations in which to get involved, OLLI at SF State and San Francisco City Guides. I try to take about ten OLLI classes every year. San Francisco City Guides offers more than sixty walks a week, all of them free. I lead The Murals of Coit Tower, The Landmark Victorians of Alamo Square and Fort Mason to Aquatic Park. We had 53,000 walkers in 2015.
