MY JOB AT DREW:

In addition to creating/modifying the administrative software, I do operations which entail printing jobs submitted in batch such as reports, correspondence letters, grade reports, transcripts, financial aid award agreements, monthly bills, semester bills, labels etc...  I am the help line for the administrative offices that may have questions and concerns about their module.  I train new users for them to just get started using their department's module.  I do take inventory of the department and order supplies when needed.  I maintain the various equipment used by the administrative departments such as printers, scanners (Scantron), the burster/trimmer and paper shredder.  I am the person that scans each and every faculty/course evaluation at the end of each semester which I look forward to each semester.  I have created web pages for Administrative Computing.  I have created some online forms for faculty/staff to fill out.

HOBBIES AND INTERESTS:

I really enjoy working on my house and I have learned alot doing so. I have become very comfortable doing carpentry and doing electrical work. I can finally stop calling Home Depot my second home. My projects have ranged from building a deck and finishing my basement to installing ventilation fans and ceiling fans. I also know when it is time to call a professional and I will not hesitate in doing so.

I try to work out at the Simon Forum during my lunch hour so if you see me on the track running a mile every day or in the weight room and/or Cybex room feel free to wave a friendly hello.

I also love travelling because of my Mom and Dad. I am very fortunate that my Mom and Dad loved it too because we often went camping while visiting many states (forty-five at the last count) with Hawaii (on my honeymoon) being one of my favorites. I have also been to the Philippines, Europe, Mexico and the Caribbean. Now that I am married and have three children, I am not travelling as often as I would like. I did have the opportunity to go to Disney World with them and have found that travelling with them makes it even better and more enjoyable.

I also play the alto saxophone for the Clifton Community Band in which we performed at Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ this past July 4th.  John Philip Sousa, “The March King” loved Cape May, NJ so much he wrote the “Congress Hall March” to commemorate a series of concerts held there in the summer of 1882. The Clifton Mustang Band Alumni Asssociation and the City of Clifton sponsored Clifton Community Band made history at Cape May’s Historic Congress Hall Hotel on July 4th by being the first band to play Sousa’s Congress Hall March live on the very same lawn Sousa & The Marine Corp Band performed 122 years ago! A crowd of over one thousand gathered for the 2-hour concert & fireworks display.

I love reading Stephen King novels when I do have the time but with all my projects and workout schedules I rarely have the time to enjoy his large novels.

FAMILY:

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Alena. She graduated from Rutgers, College of Pharmacy and is a Staff Pharmacist at The Mountainside Hospital in Montclair, NJ. I also have three great children, Matthew, Jonathan and Christopher who give me such joy and happiness.
