I graduated from Sachem High School with Honors. Out of 1230 students I was ranked 20, being in the top 2% of my class,
with an average over 95 and several credits towards college from advance placement courses for English, Science and Calculus.
I graduated a member of the National Honor Society and with an advanced regents diploma.
My first semester of College was at SUNY Albany with a major in Astronomy. After the first semester the Astronomy program
was discontinued and I transferred to SUNY Stony Brook with a Major in Computer Science.
At the age of 19 I was attending college full time and working in the super markets as a produce manager assistant. I had
extensive experience in the supermarkets and was then on the training program for produce manager making $40,000 per year.
Many associates I knew where very highly regarded executives that all had advanced training and no degrees. I strongly felt
that the education I was receiving was not fully applicable to life situations. Many executives told me that most of what I
would learn in college would never apply.
I was offered an opportunity to start a new position in a new career, electronics. I left school and started working full
time as an electronic technician making $12,000 per year. I started at the bottom so I could learn all that was needed.
Within 6 months I advanced and by the end of the first year I attained over $40,000 per year with unlimited potential.
Over the next 4 years I learned all about business, company operations and much more then I would have ever learned in school.
I have earned my degrees through life experiences and have worked in every capacity in business, from the bottom all the way
to the top positions.
