What would you like to know about me? I’m a WNY native, born and raised in Springville, and I haven’t really left the nest much. 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. But when I’m not taking them from place to place, my newest hobby is taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I’ve been taking that for about two and a half years now, so it’s not uncommon to find me at my dojo. I also own a sound system, so I’m busy…a lot. Down time? I don’t get a lot of that, but when I do have some time to relax, 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.
