My family and I are delighted with the chance to live the call together with the family at Trinity Alliance Church. I grew up in Connecticut and went to college in Utica, NY, where I trained as a studio artist. I still maintain an active hobby as an illustrator (see CrimsonLine Studios).
After college, I worked for ten years with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Colgate University and Hamilton College, where I met and married Karina. We have two great children, Timothy (born 2002) and Evelyn (born 2006) and my mother lives with us. Our family loves board games, softball, computers, reading, kayaking, long walks, movies and more. Here in the Rochester area, we've loved the Strong Museum, Frontier Field (go, Red Wings!), Niagara Falls, and the Greece Ridge Mall.
I am tired of shallow answers to life's deepest questions. I believe that God is living and active in the world today, and that He longs to forgive, to heal, and to restore people's lives. I believe that God is not silent, but He has spoken powerfully in His Word, and by taking flesh - walking in our shoes in the person of Jesus Christ.

I was born in Italy. My education was at a Technical School. Our family had a Knitting Business.
In 1959, I visited my relatives in Montreal, Quebec - Canada. I met and married Esther; then I moved to Rochester, New York. The Lord blessed us with two children, Frances and Nicholas and four grandchildren, Alexandra, Nicholas, Lauren and Noah.
I worked and retired from Harris Corp./RF Communications as a Senior Industrial/ Manufacturing Engineer. I wrote process details and manufactured the first mobile telephone ( RF-470). Now it is the most sophisticated cell phone used. My career was successful.
During the same time, I served the Lord Jesus Christ teaching and preaching God's word in the Italian language.
