about me

Double Dummy is available for download or rental at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/doubledummy

As an 18 year old freshman at the University of Virginia, I learned how to play bridge for the first time. My aunt Kathleen, visiting for my grandfather's funeral, said the following as I explained the house rules for Hearts, "this is stupid we should be playing Bridge." Despite what I remember as an initial protest, Kathleen won out and I don't think I played Hearts again for at least 20 years.

The first seven years of my bridge playing career were spent sporadically enjoying a game when home with my parents. My older sister Melissa often filled out those games. Sometimes, a neighbor or couple would come join us. It still boggles the mind, that I lived in New York City, for slightly less than two years after graduating, and it never even occurred to me to look for a bridge game!

Agreed Nick, as mentioned on the show, I would like to see Jeff do some speaking and am going to see about getting him an opportunity here in Charlottesville at the Tom Tom Festival.

Hi Allan, Thank you for the compliment. Mike Levine is the sponsor of the this new team starting summer of this year I think. Jeff and Eric are playing the trials with Nickell.

Of course! We ask all interviewees to record their end in a bathtub! Actually, no, I think it's reverb and I now know to make sure we both wear headphones for these going forward. Darn you Shireen! I liked it better in San Francisco when you couldn't talk!

Kevin, I’m sitting here waiting for some Christmas presents to be wrapped at Scarpa, a women’s boutique here in Charlottesville, Va. I started laughing out loud when I read the bit about charging for the extraordinary services and got to share the reason for my laughter with a ...
