New York City
I was part of the music scene that was CBGBs and Max’s Kansas City in the late 70s and 80s. We were playing the same time Blonde, The Talking Heads, Ramons and The Shirts were just being noticed by Sire Records.
I registered PalmSprings.com in 1995 only after trying to claim the domain name in 1994. After hearing President Bill Clinton in 1992 declare that the internet would be open to public as the super informational highway I decided to find a way to put my company called Powwow Productions on the the web. It took me longer than I had anticipated but in reality I was way ahead in the game. Powwow.com was my first domain name registration. I searched many other names in 1994 and most were available to register for free. It was a first come, first served basis. Since I felt I only needed the web address…
I started playing the piano at nine years old and then to accordion since my father Aldo use to play accordion when I was a child growing up. There was a time my 4th grade Catholic school class that one of the 12 pupils in my classroom stood up and played his accordion. His name was Gregory Sinclair and I noticed how he instantly became the focus of everyone’s attention. I thought that I had that same advantage since my dad played the same instrument. I asked my dad to teach me. later, when I went to Boynton Beach Junior High School, I wanted to be in the marching band.…
I spent many years as a songwriter and musician. I started playing the piano at nine years old and then to accordion since my father Aldo use to play accordion as was a child. There was also a time in 4th grade Catholic school that one of the 12 pupils in my classroom stood up in front of the class and played his accordion. His name was Gregory Sinclair and I noticed how all the class was focused on him. I thought that I had that same advantage since my dad played the same instrument. I then asked my dad to teach me. When I went to Boynton Beach Junior…
I’ve created and managed many of the platform solutions that are used distribute my virtual businesses worldwide. While my companies are not structured as the size of and Amazon or Facebook, my company’s platform starts off with the same window-a great domain name address. After a visitor enters an address like Nashville.com or searches for our business the link to my infrastructure has changed over the years. I believe in employing the least expensive necessities for the best return. Once a better solution is needed, than it makes sense to quickly upgrade to the demand. Many businesses have failed because of not having the best solutions when they are paying…
My brother and I purchased Nashville.com back in 2002 for six figures. We were able to pay off the initial sum within 3 years with one real estate advertiser who paid us $3,000 a month for exclusive usage of the vertical.
Born in the Bronx
I was born at Westchester Hospital in Bronx, New York to Aldo Enzo Castello and Victoria Rose Iasoni who were both Italian and also lived in Bronx with many other family members. I have an older brother David. My family picked up and left Little Italy for Boynton Beach, Florida when I was 1 1/2 years old. If you have watched the movie Bronx Tale, that pretty much explains why my father wanted us out of the area. As much as they loved Arthur Avenue and the abundance of family in the area, we were happy to be playing on the sunny beaches of Palm Beach County.
