I am a 68 year old retired IT system analyst who finished his career as an independent consultant working for such financial institutions as ANZ Bank in Melbourne Australia, Norwest Bank in Denver and First Chicago Bank in Chicago.
I spent 1995-96 testing out of 3 years of credits and a final year of independent study at Regis University here in Denver, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a B.A. in Social Science and then accumulating 18 credits toward an M.A. before accepting a consulting position and discontinuing my schooling.
I am a 3 time married and divorced father of three who lives with his last wife, functioning as friend and caregiver for her since she has been afflicted with multiple sclerosis since 1992.
I am also a lapsed member of Mensa, do to having found there - perhaps merely by luck and timing of my active membership here in Denver - no more interesting individuals than those I know in my daily life.
Finally, I am a second generation Irish native Chicagoan who was raised as a Catholic but have been an agnostic since my early teens. Despite my antipathy for both Mayor Daleys, I can fairly be described as a lifelong Democrat whose only departures voting wise, was for John Anderson, a liberal Republican who ran as an Independent against Carter and Ford in 1976 and for Ralph Nader in 2000.
I will vote for Bernie Sanders should he achieve the unlikely task of winning the Democrat nomination. I will vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party if Hillary is the nominee.
