Jeff Vaccaro | webdad3 Technologies
 

webdad3 has been my online moniker for just about 15 years now. It obviously represents that I am a father of 3. When I created the name I was a novice web developer, so I put the 2 most important things together and viola webdad3! I bought the domain webdad3.com about 5 years ago now. I am using this domain as my test bed for different technologies that I learn.

webdad3 Technologies is my software and web development company. I have been working in the I.T. industry for 17+ years and my specialty is custom business software.
