Born and raised in Manhattan, NYC. Grew up through the rough times in NYC and in a bad neighborhood, but kept my wits about me and stayed out of trouble. The thing I liked the most about NYC was being exposed to so many different cultures, and getting to know a wide variety of people. The street smarts is something I'll always be grateful for too.

I'm in NJ now, but literally right across the river; it's nice having a view of the city skyline from my condo.
