Buthaina and I live in Columbia, Maryland - Buthaina works in development for the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at George Washington University and I'm 'retired' from a 30+ year career in science and defense policy issues. Buthaina and I married in 2013 after meeting in 2009. My late wife Sara died in 2007, and between us Buthaina and I have 5 children: David and Sarah (mine), Jessica (Buthaina's), and Rachael and Laura (my step-daughters from Sara); and so far four grand-children: Cole and Erin (David), Siyah (Sarah), and Ben (Rachael). We share our Columbia townhouse with two Maine coon rescue cats, Lili and Ava.
I now spend much of my time working on US-Cuba projects, previously with the Latin America Working Group of Washington, DC, and now with Ocean Passages LLC of Portland, Maine/Washington, DC and its schooner-based educational and marine skills training program (www.ocean-passages.org). I also continue to take road trips in my 2005 Mini Cooper, see and read as much Shakespeare as possible, and visit family from Boston to Los Angeles.
Buthaina and I play a good deal of USTA tennis; we've both been fortunate to have been on teams that went to the national championships in Phoenix in recent years. Our teams were soundly trounced, but the experience was unforgettable. We hike, play golf, enjoy music and theater in both Baltimore and Washington, follow the Washington Capitals, and get together for meals and other pastimes with a wonderful circle of friends.
I'm not able to update the website as often as I'd like, but always enjoy doing so when there's time.
