I manage the Astronomy and Sport Optics departments at Adorama, Inc. in NYC. My interest in astronomy started at the young age of 7 where I viewed the heavens from my backyard in Brooklyn NY. I am a astro-imager, and specialize in Deep Sky, Solar and Comet imaging.  I am Co-Founder & Co-Chairman of the Northeast Astro-Imaging Conference (NEAIC) which is a world renowned astronomy imaging conference held in Rockland County NY. I am a member of the Puckett's Observatory Supernova Search Team (POSS) where I have co-discovered 20 supernovas. My other interest lie in the outdoors they include: astronomy public outreach, birding, nature photography, back packing, hunting and shooting. I am a member of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO). I am also a member of the following astronomy clubs, The Greater Hazleton Area Astronomical Society (GHAAS), The Lackawanna Astronomy Society (LAS), The Rockland Astronomy Club (RAC) and the Warwick Valley School District Astronomy Club where I am also an advisor.
