Some Info About Him

He has been a member of the Washington-area Jewish community since he was an infant.  He had his Bar Mitzvah at Tiffereth Israel Congregation.

He attended Shepherd Elementary School in the District, followed by three exciting years at Montgomery County, Md.’s Kensington Junior High School, where he was elected president of the student council, ran the quarter-mile in under a minute, and fortunately learned the hollowness of being popular just for the sake of being popular.

He graduated in 1972 from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, where he wrote for the school newspaper and appeared on the TV quiz show “It’s Academic.”

He graduated from Oberlin College in Ohio with a history degree and then attended graduate school in art history at the University of Chicago, which was followed by an internship at the Smithsonian Institution.

He is a freelance journalist whose articles (mostly about the art world) have appeared in such publications as The New Yorker, the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, London Times, Baltimore Sun, Legal Times, and Washington Jewish Week.

He has served as a paid consultant to ABC News in Washington, and his television appearances include conducting a live, 25-minute tour on C-SPAN of an exhibition of ancient Greek jewelry on Capitol Hill.
