Nothing comes to mind from the '80s, but in '07 I was back at South (surreallllll!!!) filming for Nike who sponsored the North/South football game. Mr Correll gave me a grand tour, and I was having flashbacks -- some good, some not so good. lol I even ran into Mr Roth!!

Okay, so...

Upon graduating TRHSS I attended Rutgers College for what I thought would be a Computer Science degree, but ended up with a Psychology (as a Lab Science) degree and a Biology minor.

I then got an M.A. in Counseling from Montclair State, and worked at Catholic Charities in Bridgewater counseling emotionally disturbed teens and teens involved with DYFS and/or the criminal court system -- it was an experimental afterschool group counseling and recreation program. I loved it, but sadly they closed it down after about 4 years.

I then (for some reason) went back to Rutgers to get an Ed.M. in Counseling Psychology while exploring the early frontier of what would become the WWW. Needless to say, I've stayed there.

I spent 1.5 years working in Philips Electronics' new media division in NYC working on PolyGram Records' many labels. Then they closed that department down so I started consulting.

I spent another 1.5 years working for Marvel Comics (also in NYC, as a fulltime consultant) on their web site. It wasn't a world I was very familiar with going in, but it was fun to say the least. They downsized and I was sent packing again.

More consulting, which I've basically been doing since 1995, while at the same time maintaining my own websites mostly concerning gangster films, mostly The Godfather and Scarface. They've sadly not had a facelift in a decade, but they're still kinda popular. ;) I've also been running GangsterBB.NET since 2001.

I've also been doing video editing, and even spent time doing wedding videography. Yeah, you may've seen that company on the news a few years ago: they folded up shop and left everyone hanging. Story of my life! lol

I also dabbled a bit in amateur short films while taking a class for fun at OCC in '07. They're not great, but it was fun!! (See below)

Any words of wisdom?

Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer....
