I will be away from home and the office from February 23 to March 13. Ouch!
If you need to contact me, the best way is to send me an e-mail.
It is actually possible to phone me, but it costs me a lot to get your call. You also need to adjust for the time difference.
If my phone is off, I will be checking my voice mail messages at the office. You can leave me a message at +1(925)935-7640 and I should get it within a day or two.
Here is where I will be.
