One:  How did your career path bring you to LT?

I worked in Computer Services at the Civic Center for almost 8 years and dealt with Lieberman Technologies off and on over the years. I knew that they were a highly respected company that I would like to be a part of. I saw that they were looking for someone with my skills on LinkedIn and sent my resume.

Two:  What’s your favorite thing about working at LT?

Everyone helps out — if someone gets stuck on something or has an issue it’s a group effort.

Three:  Tell us about yourself.

I was born in the Bronx, New York and raised in Queens, New York with my two brothers. My family now mostly lives on Long Island and I go visit as often as I can. I attended Pace University part-time and got my Programming Certificate from Grumman Data Systems Institute.

Four:  What does life look like away from the office?

I enjoy learning new programming languages from and spend a lot of time on-line downloading sample code and trying it out. My current favorite is Basic4Android, which lets me write VB software for my phone. When I’m not on-line with programming I’m on-line looking at stocks & mutual funds or watching movies with my girlfriend.

Fun Fact:  I was interviewed by Newsday, a New York newspaper, in January 2000 for being one of the few people on Long Island that was using the internet over 40 hours a week. Back then, I was daytrading, buying IPOs, and researching companies before I purchased stocks for my portfolio as well as buying things on-line, which wasn’t as popular then as it is now.

Four and a Half: What single piece of technology makes your life easier?

My Meta-Watch (smart watch). It links to my Android phone so I always know who is calling or texting. All messages are displayed on it, along with the weather, stock quotes, number of steps and my appointments for the week.
