Money and Such

Twitter: @Shadox1

I am a business executive in my late 30's and work in the high-tech industry. I am married - in this blog my wife is known as "Alpaca" - and have three boys and a cat.

I have a business degree from one of them fancy business schools, and I also have a law degree. It has been 13 years since I last practiced law, so I am well on my way to recovery.

Alpaca and I rent our townhouse, although periodically we entertain the notion of jumping into the wildly over-priced California real estate market.

I drive a 1997 Geo Prizm. It still moves in the general direction in which I turn the wheel. Its days are numbered.

We live in Silicon Valley.

I am a first generation immigrant from Israel. I am Jewish by birth and culture and an Atheist by choice. I am a big believer in the power of science and rational thinking. I spend less than I make. I floss.

I love to read. I love to hike. I love to travel the world, and have been to about 30 countries on 5 continents. I love to ski. I am not a big fan of sports - with the exception of gravity assisted sports...
