Web Developer

From 1999 to 2009, I did freelance web design and hosting as Technical Services of New York. From 2002 to 2010, Otto Vondrak and I operated RAILROAD.NET. In 2003, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology, and in 2007, I received my Master's Degree in Information Technology, both from Rochester Institute of Technology.


I began playing the drums in 1990, graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a minor in Music in 2003, and began playing guitar in 2006. Today, I play Pearl drums with Zildjian and Wuhan cymbals and a Fender Strat.



From 2001 to 2009, I volunteered at the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum in Rochester, NY. Today, you can find me volunteering at the Niles Canyon Railway in Fremont, CA.


In 2004, my photos began appearing in Railpace magazine, and I began participating in Trackside with TRAINS in 2010. My first national feature article appeared in Railfan & Railroad Magazine in 2011. Today, you can find me trackside with my Canon Digital Rebel XTi in northern California and other nearby regions.

Model Railroader

From 2001-2003, I served as President of the RIT Model Railroad Club in Rochester, NY. From 2006-2008, I served as Superintendent of the Lakeshores Division NMRA. And from 2007-2010, I served as Webmaster for the Northeastern Region NMRA. Today, I model the modern West in HO (UP, SP, BNSF), and I particularly enjoy operation, CTC, signaling, and prototype modeling/weathering.
