Bert Rice is a native of the Chicago area and has lived here all of his life except for stints in New Haven, Connecticut (law school) and Vancouver, British Columbia. He has been married for 36 years to Kathy Moon, and they have one child, Ivan Rice, who was born on November 3, 1987, the happiest day of Bert’s life (at least so far.) Bert prefers eating to not by a wide margin and is a compulsive list maker. His major interests include rock ‘n’ roll (especially P.J. Harvey), movies (especially Alfred Hitchcock), and spectator sports (especially women’s futbol.) Bert is easy to find; just locate a windmill, and he will be the one tilting at it.
