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.

Buffalo Zoo Celebrates Star Wars Day With Announcement of Otter Pups!

I've mentioned many times that my favorite animals at the Buffalo Zoo are the otters (although George the Rhino is certainly giving them a run for their money).  I could seriously watch them for hours. They're fun, they're playful, they're just awesome.  And now there are even more otters to love!
