After graduating South, I went to Queens college and graduated there in 1976. I then moved to Manhattan and managed a local neighborhood store on the Upper Eastside for 10 years.
In 1986 I ventured into the stock market, working with an individual investor, trading for him. During that period, he and I opened a compact disc store on the Upper Eastside and were one of the first stores in Manhattan to do away with the cardboard boxes cd's came in and made it a more hands on buying experience. When the economy took a dip due to the first Iraq war, we were forced to close the store, but I took away from that experience al love of music and getting to meet people. In 1992,having moved back to Long Island, I decided to join a brokerage firm and I now have a slew of clients as well as trade for myself.
I got married to my wife Christine, in 1990, after living together for 9 years, and altho we have no children(our choice) we have many nieces and nephews that we spend alot of time with. We travel alot to see her brothers and sisters all over the States and enjoy vacations in Hawaii and Las Vegas as well.
The highlight of living back on Long Island was last year when the 2002 U.S. Open was played on my home course at Bethpage Black. It was a wonderful week and then being able to play the course 2 weeks after the Open showed me just how good these guys really are
Christine is a Group vice President of Human Resources at Macy's East and on Thanksgiving day, will be cutting the ribbon to start off the macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. If you see any Broadway stars trip, well that was probably my fault, as I am helping out with staging
Would love to hear from you all
