I was born in Brooklyn, NY but raised mainly in West Milford, NJ.  I attended Carnegie Mellon University and have been working at IBM since November 1988.  I have held several positions at IBM; I am currently a Systems Programmer specializing in the Websphere MQSeries line of products.   I currently reside in Southbury, CT with my wife Karen and our two doggies. I enjoy scuba diving, skiing, computers (even outside of work, Iím such a geek), movies and golf.  I am currently the webmaster for the Danbury Ski Club as well as this site.
