    As far as my bio goes. I grew up in Fairview NJ born 1952. I majored in history at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester Mass. After a year in VISTA I went to the University of Chicago to study history. That did not end well. I got a second bachelors in business administration with a concentration in accounting from Clark University and had a career in regional public accounting working in Worcester, Westboro and Boston. Near the end of my career I was working for Grant Thornton. I wrote mostly about taxes, but a bit about history, for Forbes.com, Think Outside The Tax Box and Your Tax Matters Partner.

    My main interest in history has been the US social reform movements of the antebellum period. I would sometimes obsess about a particular person. One of them was Thomas Wentworth Higginson. I started collecting and reading his work which is pretty extensive. Then I came to his Fuller biography and started a new obsession. I thought it was the most romantic story in American history and wanted to go a biopic. My film maker friend convinced me that a documentary should come first. That was over a decade ago and my dream of the biopic may well likely remain a dream.
