Hi everyone, pardon the delay in responding with a bit about myself, just been busy with final edits on my next book. I am the CEO of a small software consulting business that I founded in 2004 and have been in that industry for over 20 years. My passion, however, has always been writing, so last year I semi- retired from the business to spend more time writing. It has been a thrill writing my first two books, The Courage to Be Different, self published in March of this year, and Divergent Lives, coming out this Friday. I live in New Jersey with my wife and two beautiful daughters. I will post more about my two books and hope they will be read and provide inspiration. Both books are memoirs of my growing up in the boroughs of NYC, from the South Bronx to Queens.
