I’m a WNY native, born and raised in Springville, and aside from heading off to Alfred University and UB for college, I've been here my whole life. I live in Eden now with my wife Brandi and two kids Madelynn and Maverick. They kind of run my world and that’s how I like it. My dogs are also a huge part of my family. I have a Boston Terrier named Frankie that I got through a friend. We have a French Bulldog named Gerti that was a rescue through Buffalo Pug and Small Breed Rescue, and my English Bulldog named Minnie Pearl (yes after the comedian with the tag on her hat) that was a rescue through Rebel Rider's Rescue. They are like our kids and we love them very much. Although I haven't had much time for hobbies, when I do have downtime I enjoy training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I also own a sound system, so I’m busy…a lot. I've begun to enjoy home improvement projects too. I even built myself my own fully functional studio in my basement! I love to fish, camp, hang out by a fire, play some poker and generally anything that involves hanging out with friends with some ice-cold beers. I love Buffalo for its seasons. Although I'm admittedly not a fan of being cold, I love outdoor sports like skiing and snowboarding. I never have enough time for that though through all the shoveling and snow blowing.
