I was born in 1938 in Woodside, Queens, New York City and graduated from PS12, Stuyvesant HS, Cooper Union (B. Elec. Engg), Drexel (M.S. Biomed. Engg), and Temple (Ph.D. Med. Physiology)
I am an Emeritus Assoc. Prof. of Physiology at SUNY Downstate Med. Ctr., Brooklyn, NY and retired from there in 1999 after 33 years.
I have been married since 1962 to a very talented artist and fellow Cooper grad. We have a son, daughter, 2 grandsons and 2 cats
I love melodic music classical, pop and opera and could listen to "Le Nozze di Figaro" every day. I write lyrics for music my daughter writes nothing published yet.
I go bowling once a week, and play tennis, golf and go ice skating when my joints allow.
I am an agnostic: I don't understand why there is matter, or where the universe begins and ends, so I think there is a possibility that a supreme being once existed and/or still exists.
