I'm John. I live in the hills above Oakland, California, across the Bay from San Francisco. When I have a moment to spare, I'm probably thinking about music or the mountains. I enjoy meeting new friends, traveling, hiking, working out, and (when there's snow) nordic skiing. I am a member of the Volunteer Trail Safety Patrol of the East Bay Regional Park District. I am a licensed Amateur Radio Service operator, Amateur Extra class (KS6M), and serve as Section Emergency Coordinator in the East Bay Section of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the national association for Amateur Radio™.
I also enjoy Web site design. You can see more about that at jrabold.net.
I was born in Pennsylvania, but have lived in California for most of my life. I went to junior high and high school in Long Beach, obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree from Pomona College and my master's degree from the UCLA Anderson School of Management. I'm single.
