I was born and raised in New Jersey, went to Chatham High School and Newark College of Engineering, where I majored in Computer Science and graduated with a BS in Engineering Science. I worked briefly for Esso Math and Systems; then I was drafted into the U.S. army in 1971, where I worked as a computer programmer at the Letterman Army Institute of Research in San Francisco, California. During this period, I pursued graduate studies at Golden Gate College. After returning home from the army, I returned to work at the organization which became known as the Mathematics and Computer Science department of Exxon Corporation. Years later, in 1983, I formed Zeducorp after resigning from Exxon. During the 1980s and 1990s, I designed and wrote software for IBM personal computers and Novell LANs in the Digital Research PL/I, Microsoft Visual Basic, and Data Access Dataflex languages. Today, most of my work involves designing and developing a broad spectrum of static and database-driven websites.
