I grew up in Syracuse, NY where my Mom taught me to hold the door open for ladies, where my Dad owned the corner drugstore and had me work with him from the time I was 10 and where my younger brother let me pick on him. Fast forward through college and I landed in Boston where I somehow convinced my wife Laine, to marry me. We loved it there, but when we found out we were having twins and could not find a house that worked for us, we took the kids and dogs and moved to Cincinnati. Now the twins are in separate Catholic high schools, Laine runs her own Decorative Painting business, we have 3 dogs and I try to help folks with their finances. We are big fans of Paying It Forward as we have been blessed to benefit from a tremendous circle of Family and Friends. So when we aren't doing something as a family, you will find me Coaching lacrosse or serving on a Board, Laine volunteering at Habitat for Humanity or walking the dogs and the twins asking for the car keys.
