I have an extensive background with marketing on the Internet which proceeded it's commercialism. I authored the first advertised URL or Internet address in Computer Shopper in 1993 to sell CD-ROM technology back in the days of single spin. In April of 1994, I received my last paycheck from the family cemetery business and established a company called config.sys which evolved into being an Internet Service Provider through December 2019.

I retired in April 2019 and established the Towpath Trail Snack Shack to supplement my retirement while having fun in the process. In 2015 I donated an easement to the Ohio & Erie Canalway Coaliation to close the last remaining gap on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail.
