I’ve invested a significant portion of my career building experience in Enterprise IT infrastructure, with a focus on IT project management and system integration where my in-depth knowledge of networks, servers, operating systems and storage solutions could be actively applied. I have expertise in PrePress and printing - having worked for RR Donnelley for 21 years. I've taught QuarkXPress, Illustrator and Photoshop for the Private Industry Council of WNY. I have expert knowledge of flexography and have helped develop photopolomers with DuPont specifically for Moore Business Forms requirements.I am an avid outdoorsman and I am the Chairman of the "Teach Me To Fish" educational seminars hosted by the Erie County Federation of Sportmen. Each year kids up to 15 years old are taught how to cast, bait a hook, remove the fish and even fish identification. Lunch is provided free of charge. Prizes are awarded by age group, with all participants receiving a new fishing pole and reel combo!
