I truly enjoy photography, but I didn’t study arts or photography in school nor is it my full time profession. My dad, who has been a photographer since he was young makes for an excellent teacher.
I’ve been around computers for most of my life, starting with a Timex Sinclaire 1000. I designed and authored one of the first “city” web sites on the internet for the city of Bayonne, which was featured in the NJ section of the New York Times newspaper back in 1997. The original site can be found in the wayback machine archives.
For over 16 years, I commuted into Manhattan daily for my full-time job in the IT side of the financial world where I was a Lotus Notes/Domino/Quickr Administrator/Designer/User, Firewall and router administrator, Blackberry Enterprise Server administrator, general LAN/WAN adminstrator, and I install, consult, train and support our own proprietary software.
That firm was acquired in late June of 2010, and I am now in the Journal Square area of Jersey City, NJ, doing similar work, but without any of the Lotus, Blackberry or firewall stuff. Heavy into VMware technologies with Windows, Mac and Unix.
I was the orginal web designer and secretary for the NJAGC (New Jersey Aquatic Gardeners Club). If you are interested in planted freshwater aquariums, and are in the NJ area, please join us.
I am also a member of and run the website for the historical society of Scotch Plains and Fanwood, NJ.
Anything else you’d like to know, just ask….
