About Me...

Background

I've been in NJ since 1991, but started out as a fourth generation Bostonian. After 25 years there, I headed out to Los Angeles for two years of graduate work at UCLA and then back east to NJ. Over the years I've worked at and consulted for many companies developing all sorts of software.

Outside of work, you'll find me with my wife and four sons, or singing with my barbershop a cappella group, performing with local community theater, and taking photographs.

Companies

I've been an employee or a consultant from 1983 to the present at: Wang Laboratories, Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), Citicorp / TTI, Symantec, Graphex, Ehrlich Multimedia, Aaron Marcus, Voyager Company, and InterActions Media, AT&T, MTV, Sabre, software{ART}space and others. Additionally, Apple and other companies have licensed my software for websites and various tools over the years.

Education

UMass Amherst Elected to Phi Beta Kappa, graduated Cum Laude, from The University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a B.S. in Computer Science.

UCLA Advanced to Candidacy for M.S. in Computer Science, Computer Architecture, Fault Tolerant Design, and Parallel Simulation.

 

Some Details

I've been writing software since 1977. Scanning the internet carefully, you'll find some of my code dating back to 1986. At Digital Equipment Corporation I developed software used to verify computer processor design and function at the architectural level (this can be thought of as ensuring that new computers work the same as old computers). At Graphex I developed parallel rendering code and a high resolution PostScript interpreter (non-tech explanation: creating images for printers as fast as possible using multiple computers or CPUs at a time).

Additionally, I've developed software for email servers, numerical computation, database apps, search engines, games, internet contests, and educational apps.
