Bring on 2009!

For years New Yorkers and those living in the Tri-State area have seen my photographs on billboard advisement's, now that I am working with FERRY ADS my art is not only on the boat but on NYC buses too! I got a big thrill out of knowing that the artist from the Wall Street Journal made a drawing from my photo of Michael Menicucci and it graces his syndicated column.
A lot has happened in 2008, it was my first full year in the SI BUCKS BUSINESS NETWORK, after being with the SI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
BUSINESS GUILD II for many years.
To my surprise Leo Getz
handed me the ISLAND STAR AWARD after saying some awfully nice things about me at the biggest networking event of the year!
But the greatest thing was being invited to join the STATEN ISLAND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL, now I'm having breakfast with the most important movers and shakers on this often forgotten borough!
