Rick Wolffs I’m Not

Sports writer / radio host and chairman of the Center for Sports Parenting, Westchester County, NY. We both are in the media, live a half-hour from each other. Business had us cross paths in the early ’80s, and I sometimes still get his phone calls.

Professor of Economics, the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. Seems he’s a luminary in Marxism; when I was a Libertarian activist in the mid-’90s, we were their worst nightmare (Yeah, I wish).

Executive Editor and Vice President, Warner Books, New York, NY, which may now be Grand Central Publishing.

Researcher, Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. I found him in the peak of my interest in the Dutch colonial history of the Hudson Valley, and a month before a visit to Amsterdam; my wife and I went to the front door, but didn’t go in. Maybe we thought the conversation would veer to what was the talk of September 23, 2001.

Principal, WWG Partners / Willow Wolff & Grace, Palo Alto, CA. Former Accenture founder; Silicon Valley venture capitalists. Might come in handy someday…

Mayor, Hibbing, MN. I ran for legislator in Putnam County, NY in 1993, as a Libertarian; luckily for everyone, I lost.

Carpenter, Castorland, NY. I briefly dabbled in carpentry.

Lab Manager, Microsoft, Redmond, WA. I’ve made a living on Macs since 1987.

Film Producer, Hoffman Wolff Productions, Shawnee Mission, KS. See a pattern here?

Former professor, College of Visual and Performing Arts, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY. Ditto!

Co-owner, Electronic Theatre Controls, Middleton, WI. Ditto!

Sales Manager, New Truck Sales, TEC Equipment, Oakland, CA. Oh well…

Backup singer for Tony Burrows on “Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes.” They were both in a band called href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Plains_%28band%29″>White Plains — which is also the name of the city in New York State where I now work.

Husband of pianist Elizabeth Wolff, recording artist at Magnatune. Have you heard? They Are Not Evil.™ I’m using some Magnatune music (not by Ms. Wolff) for a video project.

*These links may be stale, and the people may have moved on. Though I hear Hibbing has a mayor for life. (Just kidding.)

  1. Hey Verp!

    I love your new website! And I love your “Rick Wolffs I’m Not.” Very clever. Your site is inspiring and informative — and makes me want to wander down the dirt roads of “olde New York.”
    Best of luck with your discoveries and for sharing your enthusiasm for this topic with the rest of us.

  2. Rick,
    Excellent website. I’m going to have to use it as an example when I upgrade a couple of my sites. Hopefully you can give me some info about Thesis at the 2nd Westchester TweetUp.
