Major golf addict ! I praise the virtues of golf for personal as well as professional development. Love using technology to enhance my understanding and competence in sport. Former wall street veteran who ran towards the business right out of college and truly enjoyed the relationships built so it was an easy transition to build a new business who's mantra is "connecting" people over the game of golf in the center of Manhattan!
