I was born in Rochester, NY, but I currently live in Northern Virginia. I don’t want to have some long drawn out bio, so here is a relatively long drawn out bio. I believe in fate, and one fateful day in 1996 shaped the rest of my life.
I went to a suburban catholic school from preschool through 8th grade. That was followed by high school at an inner-city public school. It was that school that I started on my career in printing. I was going to take the food service class because I wanted to be a chef. As fate would have it I ended up in the printing class. The teacher, Ray Neelin, convinced me to stay in the class, and the rest is history.
During my senior year in high school I co-oped at a local printing company. I met a lot of great people there, including Zakk who introduced me to some people in the local music scene. I embraced the scene and the new friends that I made. Some of the nicest and worst people hang out in the music scene.
I decided to go to RIT to continue my printing career. I again made some great friends, including all of my groomsmen. During sophomore year, on trip with some bands friends to Canada, I met my future wife.
I moved to the DC area in June of 2004 for my job at Global Printing. I bought my first condo in 2006. Torey, my wife, moved down here in 2008 and we got married in July of 2009.
