British ex-pat living in Boston (MA) area. Learned bridge here originally (1980) so don't ask me about Acol. Took almost 20 years off. I am more of a theoretician/teacher than an expert proponent. For some reason (probably because I don't think fast enough), I don't always make such good decisions at the table as I can in the post-mortem. Many of my observations and thoughts end up in my blog (see website in my profile). In real life, I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, I teach at Northeastern University and am a partner in a big data consulting company..\n
I'm also a musician (bassoonist) and yes, people, music always outranks bridge. Sorry.\n
I have a bridge-playing wife (Kim), a 13-yr-old son (CJ) who also plays bridge (if he's got nothing better to do) and two grown-up non-bridge-playing kids. I can (rarely) be found directing bridge games.
Plus... it's free!
