 Now the hard one. Tell us what we need to know…50 years in the space below: I worked for the Township of Huntington Beach’s Dept. until 1979. Moved to NJ later that year and settled in Princeton in 1980. Began working for RCA as Administrator of Technical Operations for Earth Station Microwave Field Services where we provided communications support for all early Space Shuttle flights. I met my wife Rachel and we married in May of 1989. We live in Princeton and have 19 nieces and nephews. We are also a Great Aunt and Uncle to two of my sisters’ children.
In 2005 I began working as a Web Developer for the Educational Testing Service (ETS) in Princeton NJ where I built and published technical website sections for the US Department of Education. I retired last July 2018. I am enjoying my retirement playing squash and exercising daily and riding my 2018 Harley Fatboy 114. Rachel and I love going to craft shows, going out to eat, going to the shore, riding through the country and spending time with friends and family in Bucks County PA.
I often think of Hicksville, Long Island and the great friends I grew-up with. I miss those days when life was simple and everyday was an adventure. Those friends, places and memories will always be part of who I am as I go through life.

If I had to do it over again…
I wouldn’t have changed anything.
