about me

I often work in cellular sales/customer service I love bridge and crosswords (french, nyt and cryptics) . I'm a bidding systems expert/geek I've been a pro player and director on/off for many years, but I now mostly play for enjoyment of this very frustrating passion. I'm a recovering alcoholic for 10+ years and will help anyone I can in that department
