About Us

Ann and I are married and in our late 30's-early 40's. We live in Brighton, a small suburb of Rochester, New York. We met at work, where we both started on the same day in September of 1988. We started dating about a month later, and have been together ever since.

Ann and I both work at the same place. We are employed by a company called Performance Technologies, Inc., where I run the shipping department and Ann works in the test department. PTI designs, manufactures, and markets a wide variety of high-performance, fault-tolerant computer communications, networking, and data-storage interface products. The company (before it went public) had been listed in the Rochester Top 100 for 8 consecutive years, and since the IPO was named in the Forbes list of the top 200 small companies in America for two consecutive years, and recently was listed in Business Week's Top 100 Hot Growth Companies for the third consecutive year. The second quarter of 1999 showed a 99% increase in earnings over Q2 '98. PTI is publicly traded on the NASDAQ market, under the symbol PTIX.

For more information on the company, check out the corporate background from the PTI website.

Our wedding was certainly interesting, to say the least!! We were married at midnight on Feb. 14, 1993 (yes, on Valentine's Day) at a local shopping mall with 250 other couples. This event, called Numerous Nuptuals, is sponsored every year by WCMF, a local rock radio station. People were dressed in everything from formal wedding gowns and tuxedos to jeans and leathers. There were about 20 sheet wedding cakes, and a couple of bands. The judge who presided over the vows even played guitar with one of the bands for a couple of songs, and he could ROCK!! We spent our honeymoon at Niagara Falls, and although it's cold there in the middle of winter, we had the jacuzzi and fireplace to help us keep warm. It was definately an experience the two of us will remember for the rest of our lives!

Dave enjoys eating, sleeping, and playing on the computer. Some of his interests include science, science fiction, camping, fishing, watching TV, and listening to a variety of music (especially progressive rock, jazz, and older heavy metal).

Ann likes computer games, soap operas, and making cross-stitch needle point projects.
