About me

Introduction I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. I was an avid cyclist during my teenage years and in my early 20's. Later, I spent my late 30's and all of my 40's studying taekwondo and received my black belt in 2002. A few years ago, after a sparring injury, I decided to take a break from karate and get back into long distance road bicycling. The bicycle bug bit me again, and since then I have ridden more than 1/2 way around the world (in terms of mileage) including riding across the USA, the Natchez Trace Parkway, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the west coast of America on my custom made Roark Mach 2 titanium bicycle. I am planning for my next ride, which will be in Europe. I have been programming IBM and other computers since 1972, and am the author of the following products: IBM PCS-ADS Radiology Systems, CA-Realia RealDL/I, RealIMS, Real370, Micro Focus Mainframe Access (MFA), NeuVis NeuArchitect Mainframe Access, and IBM Enterprise Generation Language CobolGen. I am an employee of IBM, in the Software Group, and responsible for EGL CobolGen and EDT JavaGen. I am married to Aila and we have 2 children, Laura and Matthew. We reside in Connecticut.
