I was born in New York City, where I lived for a few years on W92nd Street, although I remember only snippets, such as enduring the Mumps! My Dad got a job in Nutley, NJ, so we lived in the shadow of the ITT tower briefly. I spent my childhood in Midland Park, NJ. I graduated from High School there, and did my growing up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the late '70's. I Earned my BSEE from Columbia University, and later, my MSEE from Farleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck. I worked as an Electronics Design Engineer for a small Medical Imaging equipment manufacturer for a number of years, until it was swallowed by a multinational Foreign conglomorate. I parted ways by way of a layoff after 19 years of service. I started a small Imaging Equipment manufacturing company, which lasted for a number of years, but ultimately fell victim to offshore sourcing in the motion picture industry. Since then, I have worked for several manufacturing companies. I am happily married to a lovely young lady, and am also owned by 7 cats, living in scenic Jackson, NJ.
