PROFILE:

After graduation from MPHS in 1961, started work at International Wire in Midland Park. Then started in the Postal Service in 1962.  Entered the US Army in 1963.  After a year in South Carolina, served 2 years in Germany with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment.

After the service, I went back to work again in the HoHoKus Post Office, and also went
to computer school (PSI in Hackensack) at night '67 to '68.

In 1983, I married Laurie Auletta of Park Ridge, NJ.  We first met at a mutual friends house in 1979 in Warwick, NY, at a horseshoe event for the guys.  When she showed up with her girlfriend, she picked up a horse shoe and --  unbelievably -- threw a ringer !  I was hooked............ and, she has never thrown a horseshoe again !   We have no children.

Left the Post Office in 1984 to start a new career as a salesman for a Satellite TV Company;  and in 1987 started my own Satellite TV Company in Gardiner, NY:  Microstar Satellite Sales and Installation.  At that time we put up mostly residential systems........ the 10- and 12-foot dishes, and then, later, the small DirecTv dishes.  I still do DirecTV dishes part time.

My hobbies:  hunting, fishing, snow-mobiling, and going to the Outer Banks with classmates.
