I was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1949 and grew up in Ridgewood, Queens. I attended grammar school in Ridgewood, high school at Christ the King H.S. in Middle Village, Queens and college at Manhattan College in Riverdale, the Bronx, where I received my B.S. in Mathematics in 1970. After graduating, I started my career as an Actuary. For the last 31 years I have been employed as an actuary by one the country's largest and oldest human resources consulting firms. I am an Associate of the Society of Actuaries and a Member of the American Academy of Actuaries, the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries, the Conference of Consulting Actuaries and an Enrolled Actuary.
I'm married to Linda, have one daughter, one stepdaughter and five grandchildren.
Besides my interest in trains, more specifically rapid transit and commuter rail - especially the NYC Subway and the LIRR - I also enjoy fishing and boating, and old mystery movies such as Charlie Chan, Sherlock Holmes and Mr. Moto. I have been an avid NY Mets fan since 1962, their first year of their existence.
