Biographies can be difficult to write and read.  That hasn't seemed to stop me, however.  This webpage will present things I think are important in my life.

The most important thing in my life is my partner, Ken Sherrill. We have been together for over 30 years.  Ken is a professor of political science at Hunter College of the City University of New York.  He is not only my partner but my moral center.  I depend on him in so many ways. Below is a picture I took of him recently. We met in Central Park. Gee, that sounds romantic. Since he is a private and independant person, and this is my website, I'll leave most of the other details of our life together to your imagination Having a life partner with the intellect and compassion of Ken is the luckiest thing that ever happened to me.

I was born on a farm in southeastern Nebraska in 1945. Yes, that makes me a farmboy, heheh.  I am 5'8" and 165 lbs (secretly hoping to be able to change that to 155).  I grew up in Boulder, Colorado and consider that my "home town."  Theater became a central part of my life after rejected becomming an accountant (yeah right, Gerald an accountant.) Since only "girls" could be dance majors, I majored in theater. After graduating from the University of Colorado I ran away to the big city to make good, or at least to make a living The first professional school I went to was the Henry Street Settlement Playhouse. That is where I met and studied with Alwin Nikolais . The rest of my dance career is on the Modern Dance page, Pictures.

I live in New York City. I have no desire to live any place else in the world and I have been to most of it. As an UpperWestSider, I am partial to this great neighborhood. Ken and I live in a brownstone near the Museam of Natural History. We are lucky enough to be five minutes away from both Central Park and Riverside Park, two of the wonderful parks of New York. 

This is a photo taken out of the window from my office.  I do love my neighborhood.  Having lived here for over 25 years, I have seen it change dramatically. As you can see, this is an area of old New York. The street was completely built by 1885. Our house was built in 1881 and much of the interior is as it was originally.  It's a lot of work to keep up but having space in the city is such a wonderful luxury, it is worth it.
