Born and raised in Brooklyn, and on Long Island, went to college Upstate in New York, then went to graduate school in the city, and currently living in Queens...
I value the relationships I have with my family and friends, and it's important for me to have time on a regular basis to spend with those who I care about. I've always worked very hard to get where I am professionally, and I'm thankful that I've chosen a profession that I find both rewarding and intellectually stimulating.
Personality-wise, I'm friendly, loyal, genuine, and easy-going. Like most here, I have a great sense of humor.
Some interests and hobbies include concerts and live music, Yankees baseball, Giants football, and Knicks basketball (as tough as they are to watch now) ethnic foods, cars, and travel locally, nationally, and internationally.
