Military Service: U.S. Army  

I went in the Army in July ’89 as a Telecommunications Terminal Device Repairer (Telecommunications, Main Frame, and Desktop Computer Repair),my first duty station was Korea Feb ’90-June ’91 (2nd Infantry Division) during the first Gulf War.

I then moved to Ft. Drum NY (10th Mountain Lt. Infantry Division) in June ’91-June ’93, where I went to Germany in Feb ’92 for 6 weeks for REFORGER, (Return of Forces to Germany, it is a WW III Training exercise), while stationed there.

In June ’93- Apr ’97 I moved to Ft. Ritchie MD (ISECCONUS Information Systems Engineering Command Continental United States) as an electronic data equipment installer. I installed communication/cryptographic systems for NASA, the DEA, and other Government agencies. I Traveled 9 months out of the year, and left the military to be able to be with my family.

I married in Oct ’95 to Carolyn, my wife of 13 years which has proven to be the wisest thing I have ever done. She works as a teachers aide in the Grundy County Special Education Co-Op. She got involved in Special Education after our youngest son Jonathan was diagnosed with Autism in Mar '05.

I got out in Apr ‘97, and my father died of a heart attack in Dec that year. I miss him a lot. Mom is in her 60's and still going strong.

I graduated from Moraine with an A.A.S. (Science), and will be continuing my education at UIC pursuing my B.S. in Engineering Management.

I went to work for Siemens Building Technologies right after the Army in Apr ‘97 as a Senior Technical Support Specialist working on the Access Control and Closed Circuit Television systems at O’Hare Airport, and I managed the systems at Midway Airport for 8 years.

From there I went to ITG Solutions Inc. in Feb ’06 to become a Security Project Manager. My boss retired in ’07, and I became the Security Operations Manager in Aug of last year.

I had 3 boys along the way, and continue to live the dream in suburbia.

Well that was 20 years at the 30,000-foot level.

School Story:

Not much here I care to share, mostly ran with the wrong crowd and wasted my youth.
