I started in communications wiring in 1987 as a sub-contractor for NYT Cable TV in Cherry Hill, N.J. I took that trade with me into the US Navy in 1989 where I furthered my communications skills as a Crypto logical Technician. Upon leaving the Navy and moving to Virginia, I began to contract with companies in the Central Virginia area; Lynchburg Cablevision, Campbell County Cable/Nesbe, Adelphia (both Lynchburg & Charlottesville). In 1995, Time Werner launched Primestar Satellite television services and offered a lucrative installation contract. I learned satellite communications which led to an offer from the Amerilink Corporation (formerly NACOM) located in Richmond, VA. There I took advantage of the many training programs they offered (see certifications & achievements) to further my career in communications. I became fluent in the installations of fiber optics, CAT5 communications wire and voice & data networking. Received promotion to foreman and oversaw the voice and data network builds for Circuit City stores, Carmax, NASA DC offices and others. Headed the Radio Shack / RCA rollout program in the Mid-Atlantic States. In 2000, Amerilink was purchased by a competitor and the Virginia offices were closed, I opened Wavelength Communications in June 2000. Starting with 2 installers I rapidly grew through quality workmanship and an attention to customer satisfaction to our peak in 2005 employing 120 installation technicians (subcontract & employee).
