Hi, my name is Frank Caperino and it is a pleasure to meet you. I was born and raised in Hoboken, NJ and have lived in many places during my professional working career. I have lived in New Hampshire, Washington, D.C., Virginia Beach, VA, Naples, Italy (3 years), and Yokosuka, Japan (4 years). I have traveled to 28 countries in my working career. I now live with my family in San Diego, CA. I have lived in San Diego since 1986. I have two married daughters and three grandchildren. I received a BSEE degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ and an MBA with Financial Emphasis from National University in San Diego. My electrical engineering degree is what provided for all the extensive travel during my life. I worked for Sperry Univac for fourteen (14) years; during this period, I repaired, installed and instructed U.S. Naval personnel on computer systems aboard ships and at U.S. Naval bases.
