I have been aboard the stagecoach for over 20 years as a corporate historian. Earlier, I worked for the National Park Service and as a consultant in preservation and cultural resource projects. When not bicycling through the hills of Marin County, California, I also serve on the board of my hometown historical society in Mill Valley.
