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 Danbury, CT with my wife Karen and our three doggies. I enjoy scuba diving, skiing, computers (even outside of work, I’m such a geek), movies and golf.
