I am a 17 year resident of Peekskill, which for me is a record number of years living in the same location. I was born in the southern most city of Westchester, Mount Vernon, and now live (and will most likely die) in the northern most city of Westchester. I have had a very varied and interesting working career. First job after school was with big blue, (no, not the NY Giants, but oh how I would have loved that) IBM. I worked for the New York Apples of the World Team Tennis League along with tennis greats, Billie Jean King and Virginia Wade. My last job before going into business for myself was with Madison Square Garden. In 1992 an MSG colleague and I started American Dream Promotions, Inc. a PR and Promotions company.
In 2011 I established The Peekskill Trolley Company and purchased a trolley which had been retired from the Watchcom Transit Authority in Bellingham, Washington, brought her here to Peekskill, refurbished her and now operate a trolley tour and charter business.
