|I'm a New York City baby boomer currently employed by IBM as an IT Architect/Developer. Prior to joining IBM, I worked in the IT departments of an investment bank, The Legal Aid Society of NYC, and spent many years as a VAX/VMS specialist for the Grumman Corporation on Long Island. I've flown F-14s and Lunar Modules (simulators, mostly). While with the Legal Aid Society I was named a Computerworld/Smithsonian medal laureat for Innovations in Technology for developing a case management system for the Juvenile Rights Division.|
When not puttering around with computers, my interests and hobbies include road bicycling, hiking, music (doo-wop 50's, new age, soundtracks, and anything by Phil Spector). My first attempt to contact extra-terrestrial life was flying model rockets in the early to mid 1960's (NAR #5073). I'm an on-again/off-again science fiction fan, and have been involved over the years with fandom and F&SF conventions, including the original Star Trek Conventions in NYC. These were my further attempts at communicating with alien life forms. Now I work from home and network with strange if somewhat sentient beings all over the world.
