Born in Atlantic City, he grew up in Cape May, N.J., and went to Peddie School in Hightstown, where he was a swimmer and soccer player. At Princeton he loved studying electrical engineering and, as he wrote in the Nassau Herald, acted as “morals chairman” of Tower Club.
After college he joined Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.M., where he worked on the safety of nuclear-weapons systems and earned a master’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of New Mexico. In 1972 he earned an MBA in finance at Harvard Business School. Later on he was a vice president and managed portfolios in the trust department of Comerica Bank in Detroit, retired early, and ran his own securities-trading business.
