I grew up in Westchester County, NY, and have since spent time in Boston, MA, New Jersey and now live in Fairport, NY where I drive by a cow and sheep farm every day.
Currently, I am a Scrum Master and project manager for ShoreTel. I run multi-million dollar telecommunication systems integration projects using our custom built call processing software.
I married Karen at the Flamingo in Las Vegas (yes, Elvis was with us) and in 2001, we had a baby girl, Erin, who decided she was going to be 72 days (11 weeks) early.
In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my girls, history, reading, eating pizza, all types of games from board to video, and rooting for the Boston Red Sox and the NY football Giants.
