    Hello everyone.  My name is Chris; I am the new BLA for New York.  I graduated from SUNY Maritime College with a BS in Marine Transportation and a USCG Third Mate's license in 1982.  In 1983 I began working for NYS Parks as a Marine Services Rep.  I continued in that position until 1999 when I left to become a State Park Manager at a cluster of State Parks.  In 2014, I returned to main office for Parks in Albany and became Director of Snowmobile program for NYS Parks. Snowmobile program.  Last December, I accepted the BLA position and essentially came full circle back to where I started.  On a personal note, I enjoy sports, hiking, biking, and golf.  I am an avid Mets and Jets fan (yes, I've suffered greatly and feel there should be a spot in heaven for me).  Looking forward to working with everyone.
