About me: I live in Newton with my wife and two children. Grew up in the suburbs of Hartford, Connecticut. Work on business computer software.

Went to college at Washington University in St. Louis where I started out as an Architecture major, and ended with a major in Jewish and Near Eastern Studies and minor in Business Administration. Spent a semester abroad in Israel. Lived in New York City for four years where I worked for a religious nonprofit, ended up mostly helping them with their computer systems and what then this newfangled Internet thing, and went back to school for my master’s degree in Computer Information Systems. Moved to Boston later on.

I have a page with more details on my professional interests.

  • Marc,

    Terrific post on the family memo. We were glad to have it featured on boston.com/newton, our new hyperlocal website for Newton. Feel free to email me at my address above to talk directly.

    All best.

    I followed your link from Andrew Sullivan.

    Cabot’s was a dead giveaway. I grew up in Newton, loved the bubble gum ice cream.

    Ha! Same. I was thinking, “I wonder if it’s the same Cabot’s…” I live in Brighton with family in
    Newton.

    Sorry I don’t have anything constructive to add.

    I wish there were more of those old-time parlors still around.

    Got to you via Andrew Sullivan… great blog! I have to say, though, that you must be VERY young…well, oops, compared to ME. (I just read the post about your daughter’s computing experience at 3.75 years, in which you mention that you used a computer in kindergarten. I believe I was having that same sort of computer experience, but I was out of college by then…)
