Whether in New York or New Jersey, I’ve lived within eyeshot of New York City my entire life. I grew up in a close knit, humble, community oriented, secular family. To my great fortune, my parents moved into a true “fixer-upper” and I was able to learn many valuable skills helping, literally, to build my parents’ house. I spent most of the summers of my youth in the Adirondack Mountains. When home in New Jersey, most of my time was spent building things in the woods, or playing street hockey.

After my many youthful adventures, adult life did not start so easy for me. I had received more than enough scholarships to pay for my education at Rutgers, unfortunately, illness soon took hold and I was forced to withdraw. After years of struggling and uncertainty I was finally able to get back on my feet by my early 20s. Today I’m as strong and healthy as ever.

I’ve had the great fortune of meeting so many diverse and wonderful people through the years. I have the great honor of calling many of these people friend. While in previous years my focus had been to get healthy, in the past few years I’ve been able to refocus and find direction seeking new adventures and pursuing my creative interests.
