I like to tell stories.
For twenty years, I told stories to judges, juries and clients. I practiced law in San Francisco, mostly high stakes civil and white collar criminal cases.
Before that, I told stories to voters while working on political campaigns and in government offices.
Now I tell stories about sports. Baseball mostly. Sometimes I tell stories with numbers. Sometimes I use just words. Always I try to give the reader a deeper, fuller understanding of a game, team and player.
It's a journey. Come along on the ride.
