About me

A little more about me.  I am a third generation Washingtonian, my mother was born and raised in Northwest Washington, D.C., and my father in Northeast Washington, D.C.  My father's parents immigrated to America from Russia, but my mother's parents were born in Southeast Washington, D.C., where my grandmother was raised.


I have three daughters, all of whom attend the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, Maryland and my wife is the Resource Counselor at Northwood High School in the Wheaton/Silver Spring area.
