PSGCNJ Member Spotlight: David Pastore

David Pastore was chosen as the first “Member Spotlight” profile because this new feature was Dave’s idea to find a way to get to know each other a little better and share some fun facts. All members in good standing are eligible to be spotlighted, and will be nominated by their committees. We hope to have a new member every week!
