On a Personal Note

I live in Cheshire with my wife and two children. We also recently added a mini bernedoodle to our family named, Lucy. Growing up in a large Italian family the importance of spending time with family was instilled in me very early, so when I am not at work, I can usually be found attending one of my kids’ sporting events.

I am also a lifelong New York Yankee and Buffalo Bills fan.
