I was born and raised on Long Island, NY.
I moved to California after a four year visit with the USMC.
My educational background is automotive (high school), electronics (military and "silicon valley"), computer hardware and software, and software development since 1992.
I married Susan in February of 2000 and we moved to Paradise, CA in 2003.
We are both very active in the local community. We rescue animals, participate in lots of local fundraisers, and enjoy the beauty of the Sierra foothills.
