How did your path in life lead you to becoming the heart and soul of the Woodloch IT Department?
After I was hired at Woodloch in 1997 to be an Assistant Golf Professional, I was asked to assist in the IT Department in winter months because I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from DeSales University. As the years went by, I became more and more involved in projects to the point where I had to make a choice between committing to the golf operation or to IT. I took the IT route, and it all grew from there.
When you’re not working on a computer of some sort, how do you enjoy spending your leisure time?
I enjoy spending time with my wife and family. I still play as much golf as time permits
and bowl in the Tuesday night league at Wallenpaupack Lanes.
There is an exquisite portrait of Cosmo Kramer in your office. What is your favorite episode of Seinfeld, and with which character do you most closely associate? I can’t say that I have one particular episode in mind, but what I can say is that it sure seems like a lot of situations and conversations the Seinfeld cast had over the years relate directly to real life situations. I think I closely associate with Jerry more than other charcters simply because I can find humor in a lot of situations.
In no particular order, what are your five favorite movies?
Caddyshack, Usual Suspects, Tin Cup, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Happy Gilmore.
What do you enjoy most about working at Woodloch?
I enjoy the every day challenges technology brings and being able to develop solutions to fit them. I also enjoy working with everyone else at Woodloch. It really is a great place to work.
You are quite the bowler. What kind of advice would you give to someone looking to improve their game?
My best advice is to learn the proper footwork to the approach in order to release the ball in a better position and allow for you to hit your target on the lane.
