Nadine, born 1965; Jeffrey, born 1967
Step-dad for two additional children from second marriage
Three More…granddaughters & Three great-grandsons (identical triplets)
Graduated from Foothill College, then San Jose State while also getting married, have two children, working in computer technology and playing trumpet in various R&B, jazz & show bands (Jaguars, Big City Revue, Radio, Jump Street, etc.). Enjoyed being a studio musician and the opportunity to perform at concerts, tours, TV, recordings and shows with various artists including The Monkees, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Lovin' Spoonful, BB King, David Beniot and others. In technology, I worked for San Francisco Symphony as Director, Information Technology (15 years) where we developed the first fully integrated, graphic Ticketing/Artistic Management/Fund Raising/Accounting data base system in the Performing Arts field (honored by and displayed at the Smithsonian Institute). Remarried in 1991 and eventually went to work for Hewlett-Packard as a Systems Specialist and then NFO Prognostics as Chief Technology Officer before retiring in 2001. We moved to Lake Wildwood (near Grass Valley) where I did a lot of waterskiing, fishing, got my real estate license and "flipped" homes. After four years, moved back to Menlo Park, continued in real estate and began doing landscape designs for two bay area landscape companies. Missing waterfront living, we decided to downsize and move to Foster City. This lead to co-founding Edgewater Marine, a boat company specializing in the sale, service and rental of "Duffy" electric boats. The business grew significantly over the past three years and became a 24/7 commitment. Consequently, I sold my interest in the business to return to doing landscape designs and playing my horn in a band called Chicago - The Tribute.
