About Me

I was born and raised in Rockland Couty but I have offices in Pearl River and White Plains.  I have two small children and when I have extra time I like to play hockey or read.  Otherwise, I enjoy just hanging around with the kids or coaching my son's hockey team.  My wife is a teacher in New Jersey.
