Hey! What’s a Fed doing here?

                 Hi! I'm Marv.

After a 42 year career with the Exempt Organizations Division of the IRS, I officially retired.  Busier than ever, I enjoy reading novels, exercising at a local gym, and attending NoVES Platform programs.  Along with my spouse, we have two children who both attend college.  My son is a computer nerd and my daughter is an aspiring ballet dancer.   NoVES is my second home.  I participate in a men’s group, adult education courses, and a variety of committees.  My passion is preparing the Society’s newsletter because I can pretend to be a writer after having majored in English during my college experience.  I  like to bring my government know-how to our Society and find that I have a lot in common with other members and visitors who are somehow connected to the federal government.
