Gary Schwartz

Age 71

Grew up in Chicago and suburbs and have lived here my entire life except for a short time when I was in school in Los Angeles.

I have a B.A. in sociology; M.A. in psychometric testing and evaluation and special education; Juris Doctorate; also trained as a pianist.

I have an extremely varied work history including but not limited to: teaching, education specialist, sales, public relations, law, catering, musician.

Joined the project because I find being a senior citizen very interesting. I think I am one of the few people that I have encountered that actually likes it. Since the world today is very different from when I was young, I am fascinated by how younger generations view the world and society. As often as I can, I take opportunities to have in depth conversations with them about their lives, their values, concerns etc.
