Comments:

It seems I spend most of my time trying not to grow up. I've been in the Toy business for 38 years with no end in sight. Have had the fun/pleasure of launching Uno, V Tech, Cranium, Whamo, YuGiOh as well as a long string of miserable failures. It's still fun to work with inventors and bring toys to market.

I lost my wife of 30 wonderful years 5 years ago, a new journey unfolds. My two terrific daughters live nearby my horse farm an hour north of NYC so I do get to see them regularly.

With offices in NY, Nashville, Toronto, Hong Kong, Nuremberg and just recently in Minneapolis, I travel a great deal, enjoy it and with the girls mostly on their own pretty much have a very flexible schedule which is great.

School Story:

Many good memories but mostly remember editing the school newspaper with the help and support of Harold Cantor, a very good teacher/educator.
