Personal Travel Interests: I have traveled across the United States and throughout the world, including Italy, Norway, China, Scotland, England and Ireland. But no matter where I go nothing beats right here in New York!
Favorite Experience in NYC: I have lived and or worked in all five boroughs. I was married on the Brooklyn Bridge. I currently own a house in downtown Brooklyn, but the house my wife and I first lived in was located in Coney Island, we used to walk on the beach every day. My favorite experiences since then of course include our daughter and going out together in the Village, Park Slope and Coney Island. In addition, I have run the NYC Marathon 15 times.
Getting Personal: When I was 18 years old, I used to work in my grandfather’s store in Brooklyn, it was an amazing introduction to the amazing people and neighborhoods here in NYC.
