Born and raised on Long Island, NY as 1 of 5 sons of an NYPD officer. My uncles were all New York City cops and my two cousins work for FDNY. Moved to Fl in 1989 in my sophmore year of high school. Married my best friend (HS sweetheart), joined the fire department, raising two beautiful kids (1 girl, 1 boy) and the rest is history in progress.
