Wayne was born and raised in New York City, where a common school trip was to go “into the City” to watch live musical or theatrical performances at Lincoln Center or the multitude of Broadway theaters.
Wayne left New York to attend college at MIT in Cambridge, MA where he graduated with a degree in Math & Computer Science. During his time in Boston, Wayne maintained his love for live theater and the arts, attending concerts at Copley Hall and enjoying Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops outdoor concerts during the summer.
After graduation, Wayne worked on Magnetic Fusion research at the MIT National Magnet Lab as a scientific programmer. Two years later, after experiencing the Blizzard of ’78, he decided it was time to head to balmier climes and he headed to the Left Coast to San Diego. Wayne has spent the last 43+ years developing software for a variety of different disciplines and businesses.
After moving to Poway in 1995, Wayne created Computer Software Consultants, Inc. (CSC), to provide professional computer support and guidance to small businesses. Wayne has sold CSC to a local IT support business and is now enjoying retirement.
Wayne’s interests include baseball – Go Padres! Live theater and music – he has been an avid fan of Poway OnStage for many years and also attends many classic rock concerts; traveling – with his amazingly supportive significant other, Sharon – having been to such diverse locales as the Amazon, Pantanal, Mt. Everest and the Serengeti; hiking, golfing and spending time with his two wonderful adult children, Kyle and Ariel.
Wayne joined the Poway OnStage board in February 2016 and is working with the local community to create an exciting future for world-class live performances in Poway!
