OK, here's my story so far...
I was born on May 12, 1973, and grew up in Newtown, CT. Graduated from Newtown
High School in 1991 at the tender age of 18. From there I attended the
University of Connecticut (Go Huskies!!). I graduated
in 1995 with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and English. During my time at UConn, I spent 6
months as a co-op employee at
The Travelers Insurance Co. in the Software Productivity Department. It was here that I gained
the marketable skills
that have employed me since graduation. I mean, let's face it, a Bachelor's in Psychology and
English won't get a person very far today...
Employment... yes, please
I worked at Skandia for about 8 years, starting out as a web
developer, ending up as an IT Operations Manager. Man! I loved that job.
Anyway, the office where I worked closed Sept. 30, 2004. After that, I spent some time looking for
a job in order to remain in the CT area. At the time, the market for IT management jobs was awful.
Unable to find a position that suited me, I sold my home in Newtown (April 2005), moved to Radford, VA and
returned to school full-time in pursuit of an MBA (Fall 2005).
I graduated from the Pamplin College of Business at
Virginia Tech on May 11, 2007. Now I'm on the hunt for a position
that will take me to the next step in my career.
Mom & Dad live in Radford, too. My brother and his family, including my new
nephew - Jacob live about 3 hours away in South Carolina. Here are some
I have upgraded from a Canon PowerShot A70 digital camera (2003) to an A620 (2006) to a 30D (this week).
I love photography (maybe I'll put together a web page w/ useful photography links...).

This was taken a couple of months ago, but I've cut my hair shorter since then.
