BIO

A little about me -  I was born on May 3, 1979 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.  I was brought up a Reconstructionist Jew and grew up going to Congregation Dor Hadash in Pittsburgh where my grandfather was one of the first presidents.  For elementary school I went to Solomon Schecter Day School which was in Beth El in Mount Lebanon.  When I was in my second year of third grade it merged with Community Day School where I went for the my second year of third and fourth grades.  For fifth grade I went to Minadeo Elementary and stayed in the Pittsburgh Public School system up through high school, going to Reizenstein and Allderdice.  While in high school I participated in the high school musical on the stage crew and the marching band as a secondary mascot and floor crew for football games and shows.  I also worked at Wendy’s where I worked for about 3 years.   After high school I went Edinboro University for year and then transferred to Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) to study Computer User Support.  After a about 4 years I realized it wasn’t for me so I took a break from college to work full time.  While at CCAC I got a job at a comic book store and I also worked at the school’s computer lab.  After about a year I got into Point Park University and graduated with a degree in History.  My full resume can be found here.

 

Growing up I was an avid comic book collector.  I collected almost anything Marvel and DC superhero.  By the time I quit collecting I had every issue of Uncanny X-Men and The Avengers. While I don't collect I still watch any Superhero, Star Wars, or Star Trek related media.

 

I used to sing karaoke weekly but my current work schedule  doesn’t allow for such things.  I usually sing modern and classic rock, however I am can also do a pretty good version of Cartman – Come Sail Away

 

I also enjoy biking the trails around the city.

In 2017 I restarted the Jewish Genealogy Society of Pittsburgh and am it’s current president.

I will go more into my family tree research here.
