About Me Personally
I was born in Framingham, MA and moved to Southern California (Palos Verdes) when I was but a mere
first grader. I lived in California for grades 1-3 and my family relocated to Long Island, NY (Dix Hills)
where I stayed from fourth grade through the end of High School. I continued my eduction at the
State University of New York at Buffalo where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in business with a
minor in psychology. My first job out of undergraduate school was in the beverage industry where I became
district sales manager for a national beverage company. In 1996, I visited a friend from college who had moved
to Atlanta. I loved it here so much that a few months later, I secured a temporary new job in Atlanta and
moved here. I began to recognize an interest in technology and I was looking for a more cerebral career path; so I
went back to school to get a Master of Science degree in computer information systems from Georgia State. I worked
for many years in software development; primarily working for various consulting firms.
I am married with 1 child (Caitlyn). When I'm not working, I enjoy bike riding, going to
concerts, movies, dining out, traveling, and learning new skills. My musical tastes are extremely eclectic and
span just about everything from Mozart to Metallica.
