US Army Veteran, served 2000-2004 88M E-5. BCT at Fort Sill, Oklahoma and AIT at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. I was a big wheel truck driver and spent almost half of my term at Fort Dix, New Jersey hauling vehicles from NJ to a naval base in Florida.
Born in Staten Island, NY. Grew up in Metro Philadelphia until I was stationed in New Jersey. Also lived in Ohio and Georgia. I recently moved and currently reside in Tennessee. I have a 5 year old female Redbone Hound dog, and a 6 year old fat, long haired black cat that eats Cheetos.
I was Head Admin for a paranormal and ufo discussion community for 12 years, that included forums and has evolved into a weekly radio broadcast. As our forum community eventually fell off, the radio broadcast still continues and averages 315,000 listeners weekly. I was also primarily in charge of all graphic design work as i'm proficient in photoshop and desktop publishing.
Worked with an artist for Darkhorse Comics on his web page for 5 years, writing articles and video game reviews. I've been gaming since my Atari/Colecovision compound console in the early 80's and still going strong.
Been a die hard Red Wings fan since 1993, all-time favorite player is unquestionably Steve Yzerman. I became a fan when living in Ohio as a kid before the Blue Jackets existed, as the Penguins had come off back to back cup wins I decided to root for the next team geographically closest to me which was Detroit.
I am involved with fantasy hockey and baseball leagues, mainly head to head category daily leagues. I've been involved with multiple leagues with friends and we are now going into our 5th season.
I am also Commissioner of the NYC Hockey League organized through NHL 14's GM connected mode on Xbox 360. I do all of the graphic design work, banners, signature designs, etc. I run the forums, create and manage the site HTML work and update it daily. We are currently working on a sponsorship from EA games. Homepage link is below, we have a waiting list for anyone interested in joining.
