I been a Special Olympics Athlete since 2006. I participated in Special Olympics before from 1973 to 1978. I left for other endeavors such as persevering on higher education after high school. Currently I am a Global Messenger and serve in the Special Olympics of New Jersey Athletes Congress. I came back in the Special Olympics in 2002 as a volunteer announcer. Then I got involved in the Unified bowling and bocce program of NJ. Then I was reinstated and return to the Special Olympics as an athlete. I am playing softball now with the Project Ask batters in Woodcliff Lake, NJ. I play first base and outfield. My highest bowling average is a 199. I hope and wish someday that I get selected to compete in the National games and the World games. I have a college degree in computers and I am working full time job as a Mailroom Supervisor for a Plastic Company called AEP. I am married and my wife is Linda. She also in the Special Olympics of NJ. She in bowling and bocce.
