I was born in New Jersey in 1950 and have a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. I live in Bethesda, Maryland and work in a large naval hospital in this city, National Naval Medical Center.
I am a citizen of both the United States and Italy. I have built a small house, called Casale, in Valle San Giovanni, a suburb (frazione) of the city of Teramo in Italy's Abruzzo region. I return there fairly often for visits.
I am working with a kind gentleman from Teramo, Lucio De Marcellis, on Wikipedia articles for Teramo and its surrounding communes. Part of this work involves translating information from Italian to English.
I am very interested in the Abruzzo Region of Italy in general and, more particularly, the province of Teramo.
I also enjoy contributing to the Wikitravel:Ulissi site.
