about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live in New York City and am on the board of GNYBA (Unit 155) and serve as New York's Youth Bridge Coordinator.

United States of America

Pictures are nice, too. Especially if you have a common name.
The Kids Table: There is Such a Thing as Bad Publicity
I finally got around to watching it tonight, and I thought it was pretty well done. Sure they harped on the age thing and the difficulty to learning the game. These are the biggest issues facing us in recruiting younger players, and this documentary was about four young people trying ...
BOD Restructure Vote
