I grew up in a small town in Bergen County, NJ called Moonachie. When I was young my interests were taking things apart and riding BMX. I went to Wood Ridge High School and graduated 3rd in my class. I went on to Rutgers University and graduated in 2001 with a degree in Computer Science.
I gained valuable experience administering servers as partner in a small online game server hosting company.
In 2002, I came onboard with ICANotes, LLC. At the time, ICANotes was a simple software program that allowed psychiatrists to easily make patient documentation. My task was to turn this program into an online service. I achieved this using a couple of Windows servers I built from scratch and shipped to a co-location facility in Chicago.
We only had a few handfuls of paying customers back then, but we slowly started to grow. As we added users, we added servers. We changed data centers and now we’re using cutting edge technology, including: virtualization, a SAN, and the latest and greatest Windows Server technology. All this gear put to use makes a good salary for each of my four partners, our employees, and myself.
I taught a networking class at the Art Institute of New York City.
I am married and live in Maywood, NJ.
