I am a writer, lawyer, and Generation X-er who has worked for such publications as the Wall Street Journal and Kiplinger's. I grew up in southern New England and have lived at various times in San Diego, Washington, D.C., New York, Portland, and Chicago. I currently live in Edgewater where I share my home with one curmudgeonly cat.

As a new blogger to Chicago Now, my blog is a work in progress. If "Seinfeld" was a show about nothing, consider this a blog about nothing. Like that classic program, I hope to offer a slightly off-kilter and irreverent perspective on the things I write about. I guess if my blog has any kind of theme, it's the musings of a Gen X-er - I sometimes feel like we are a forgotten generation. If you like references to all things '80s and '90s, you're probably in the right place. Which is not to say this blog will only be about that.

Thank you for reading!
