It all got started when I was a kid. My father got me hooked with trips to Strasburg Rail Road, trackside visits to Conrail's operations around Frankford Junction in Philadelphia and his subscription to Model Railroader Magazine which I always seemed to get to before he could. That magazine taught me how to read.
Of course, surrounding myself with fun and relatively sane modeling friends has helped, as did that stint I did running the website for MB Klein Inc, the model train institution of Baltimore. I now work for The Berndt Group as a web content management system engineer and consultant. I also do some freelance web work as time allows.
I proudly serve on the board of directors of The Conrail Historical Society, generally as their CIO and doing whatever else needs to get done.
My wife, large dog and I live just outside of Baltimore in Towson, MD.
You can find me on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, but I don't usually talk about railroad stuff there. For that you'll have to check out The Railwire, where I usually go to discuss my modeling and railfanning hobbies, or to the Railway Preservation News Forum, where I mostly lurk and occasionally post.
