I met David Barkan when my son began playing on the Matza Balls Ultimate team in the SF Bay Area that David founded, and I have proudly supported David’s Ultimate Peace efforts ever since. I have never played Ultimate, but when our son began playing at U.C. Santa Barbara in 1992, my wife and I went to a few tournaments and were hooked on the sport. I became a USA Ultimate (previously the UPA) board member from 2002-2004 (first non-player ever). In 2005 I published the first book on the history of the sport, “ULTIMATE – The First Four Decades”. I am an Internet Marketing consultant. I live in San Francisco with my wife, and our sons and 3 grandchildren also live in the SF Bay Area.
