And I live by that..I look at the road map as I'm backing out of my driveway..With an enlightened awareness that age brings with it..More of my life is in front of me than behind..there's a life that you learn with and the one you live as a result of that knowledge..It's made me a fierce Liberal...so I'm taking advantage of every moment I have left. I have 6 children..3 girls and 3 boys. I have two grandsons that live with my daughter, Bree , a doctor, and her husband in Washington State. I have two more daughters..Kara, a graduate from SUNY Oneonta and now works as an Graphics Production Assistant at MSNBC and one that's graduated Pratt Institute with a BFA and works in Brooklyn as an artist and tattoo artist.
My three sons, Matt, is a senior at Watertown High School and loves track and soccer, Daniel and David are twins, both Juniors at WHS. They play lots of sports but love soccer and baseball. I'm their biggest fan!
All do well, academically.
I'm a salesman and marketer and sell the intangible ideas and concepts that make my clients money. I 'manage' an advertising agency and a direct mail company called AmeriCoups.
Owning my own business is the most rewarding and challenging job I've ever worked at. I believe that the best deals are those where both sides win and position myself to see that that happens for my customers and theirs..
I live 60 miles north of Syracuse, New York...one hour from Ottawa, Canada. My kids and I enjoy camping in the Adirondacks..fly fishing but hold nothing against worms.
The kids all have and are involved in sports so I'm known to cry "FOUL" to the referee when I think it's necessary. Not a "potty mouth" here. My friends know where I stand..and that's always beside them. If they're lucky enough to have gained my trust. less »

Smart-mind Network LLC is Green!
Here at Smart-mind Network LLC, we pride ourselves on being environmentally responsible and, since our founding in 1999, we have worked hard to keep our operations efficient and to limit our impact on the environment. We also understand we can’t eliminate that impact, so we work with several organizations to counter what we can’t avoid.
One Tree Planted For Every Hosting Account
For every new hosting account at Smart-mind Network LLC we will plant one tree! We spent a lot of time researching other options for offsetting our impact, including Renewable Energy Certificates, and feel like we’ve made the right choice. Lots of other companies are offsetting some of their energy use with RECs. At this point, however, the effectiveness of those certificates is unclear, and the purchaser’s actual energy use is still almost entirely generated by greenhouse gas producing fossil fuels. If better REC options and/or new options for purchasing renewable energy become available to us, we will eagerly take another look.
In the mean time, the trees we’re planting have a clear and cumulative effect on the environment and on greenhouse gas levels. The average tree inhales 26 lbs of carbon dioxide per year and exhales enough oxygen for a family of four for a year. Trees also reflect solar radiation back into space and increase cloud cover, both of which help counteract global warming. We have partnered with MokuGift and the UN Environment Program for this project. Planting trees through these groups has the added benefit of teaching sustainable agriculture in impoverished parts of the world. less »
