My family was in the restaurant industry since the 1950’s, until the early 2000’s. I grew up in their businesses, and got a lot of my education from there. I worked in my parents’ restaurant after school from the age of 12 (I started with washing dishes), and ended my run full time there some 22 years later.

I’ve been a sales professional since that time, with my current stint in corporate legal services for the last 14 years. I’ve been married to my wife Suzanne for over 25 years. with a daughter and son, and we’ve had one pet that my daughter rescued, a crazy dog  named Cooper. We’ve lived in the same house for nearly as long, just outside of New York’s state capital of Albany.

In my free time, I like to cook, read, write, exercise, and travel with my family to places with water and beaches.
