I live in upstate New York with my lovely wife, Jodi, and our four children: Georgia, Ethan, Jude and Terence.  They say that I am a Lord of the Rings geek. Although they all approved of this project nobody thought it would take so long.  I have a Bachelors of Civil Engineering degree from Villanova University. I work in the reinforced concrete high-rise business in Manhattan. I am really not a Lord of the Rings geek. I’m a Silmarillion geek. Although this project took quite a while I enjoyed every minute of it. There is nothing in the world like creating something new and interesting.
