Hi, I was born and raised on Long Island , NY, growing up in the village of Rockville Centre . I went to college at RPI in the Victorian city of Troy , NY. For 8 years I worked for AT&T - Consumer Products division, which was spun off to Lucent Technologies , in 1996 and spun off again to a joint venture with Philips in 1997. The VideoPhone team I was part of went back to the AT&T side of the business. I spent several years working for Prescolite. At home I've been working on going solar with photovoltaic panels on our roof.
