I grew up in a neighborhood that was diverse, both ethnically and spiritually. My family is Italian and my parents taught me that it didn’t matter what your ethnic heritage, gender, religion, or sexual orientation, if someone needed help, you helped. I follow this mantra to this day. My parents worked hard—two jobs—and tried to instill in my brother and me that by working hard and helping others, you will make a difference anywhere you go.
Serving on the Board of Directors is important to me because working with the staff at Mountain Park has shown me what a difference the organization makes in the community. From serving free breakfast and lunch in the summer, to encouraging a healthy lifestyle, they go beyond traditional healthcare.
My wife and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have a Pitbull/Boxer mix named Louie. I am a small business owner of a picture framing business. I’m a huge advocate for independent and locally owned businesses. In my free time, when I’m not working, I really enjoy playing ice hockey, riding my motorcycle, and collecting various sports memorabilia.
