I am a non-profit lifer, recently retired. I’ve lived in Chicago since 2016, after (going backwards in time) Oakland, NYC, Seattle, and Philadelphia. I grew up in Connecticut and British Columbia. I fell in love with my wife in 1995 and we were wed for the 1st time in 1997 under the care of our Quaker Meeting in New York; we went through 4 more rounds of successively greater legalization in California until the Supreme Court finally got us married once and for all in the Obergefell vs Hodges decision of 2015. My retirement project is building One Roof Chicago, intergenerational housing for LGBTQ+ seniors and young adults. I joined the Dialogue Project because I love to connect with people and bring us all up together.
