I am a middle aged, Jewish, American male with an eclectic, international background and perspective.
I am tolerant of others and their views, and expect tolerance of my views.
I have lived in several countries and have traveled extensively all over the world. I’m well educated with Bachelor’s degrees in Near Eastern Studies and Languages and Electrical Engineering; and Master’s degrees in Industrial and Systems Engineering and Business (MBA). I tend to be fairly “multi-cultural” and enjoy getting to know other cultures.
I tend toward the “Center” politically, although these days, I’m not really sure what that means. I highly value logic, eschewing emotional arguments. I like data when making decisions.
I am NOT a member of any political party, nor do I wish to be – frankly, I think that our elected officials owe too much to special interests, and neither major party comes close enough to my views, overall, for me to support them.
I hope you enjoy reading my perspectives, and hope to hear from you!
