I consider myself a workaholic that still finds time to have fun. I have spent 30 plus years at small Connecticut manufacturing company a “Paper Company” where I hold two critical positions. Those positions are Director of Information Technology and Technical Maintenance Manager. In my Technical Maintenance Manager Role there I have had the pleasure of designing and building specialized machinery used on the manufacturing floor. I get to play with things like Servo Motors & Drives, Motion Controllers, PLC’s and HMI’s (Touchscreens), Pneumatics and Hydraulics. I have extensive experience paper slitting, tooling and paper converting equipment. On the IT side of things I have been a computer nerd since Windows 95. I currently manage the entire company infrastructure and support with minimal 3rd party help.

I also spent 20 years as a property manager for an apartment building that was owned by the owners of my day job.

When I clock out at the day job I’m working my personal business which consists of twenty something websites dedicated to outdoor activities, photography and living life in general. I’m very good with WordPress and all that goes with that. I rent a dedicated server from Liquid Web to host my sites. I know more about SEO and Google than anyone who doesn’t do it for a living should have too. I like to know how to do EVERYTHING MYSELF. I like the education as much as the end result. On the side I also do a bit of website consulting.

When I’m not working I can be found enjoying the outdoors, mountain biking, fishing, hiking and walking my dog Sully. I rescue cats, I have two Ocicats Odin and Ryan Reynolds as well as two once feral cats Zazz and Halo. I have a tremendous passion for photography.
