Life Outside of Northland:

I grew up in Syracuse, NY. I began my career with Northland as a Systems Administrator in 1995, and played a key role in developing internet services. I now live in Cicero with my wife, Pam, and our four children. I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, woodworking and electronics.
