That's me.

It's so hard to believe - 40 years! After Miramonte, I went to the University of Oregon and got a B.A. in psychology;  I loved being there. I got into the hippie scene and went to Woodstock in l969. In 1971, I got accepted to the masters program in psychology at San Diego State. In 1974, I helped start a community clinic (Mid-City) in San Diego. It started off as a free clinic and has evolved into a $10 million clinic today. I'm the only person still affiliated with it; my current role is that of Board of Directors vice-president. In 1979, I went back to school and got a Ph.D. in clinical psychology in 1982 from the California School of Professional Psychology in San Diego. I've been a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice the past 23 years. My wife, Meg, is also a psychologist and we work together. I have two great kids. My 18 year old daughter, Courtney, is going to be a freshman at Cuyumaca College in the San Diego area. She was in all star competition cheerleading the past 7 years - her teams won 10 national championships and were twice finalists in the world championships. My 14 year old son, Jared, is going to be a freshman in high school - he's played baseball, tackle football and basketball. He'll be playing on the freshman basketball team (yes, he knows about Miramonte's 66-67 basketball team!). He is also an accomplished rock drummer; last year at age 13 he recorded an original CD. Since 1988, we have lived in a small town, Jamul, which is 20 miles east of San Diego and it is so much like Orinda of the l950's - rolling hills, pop. of 10,000, two traffic lights, and we live on 2 1/2 acres. I have really great memories of Orinda. I'm still a die hard Giants, A's, Raiders, 49'ers and Warriors fan. I'd love to keep in touch with people from the Orinda days and I'm really looking forward to August 18!
