Where are living now?
Lewis Center OH

Did you play collegiately?
Not football, but I did wrestle in college at the University of Pennsylvania

What are you doing now?
I moved back to Ohio two years ago after spending the previous 15 years in the New York City area.  I wanted to be closer to my family and my wife's family.  I started an investment management business this year called FC Wealth Solutions.  We are a full-service financial advisory business that specializes in money management.

Are you married?
I have been happily married for 12 years.  My wife, Monica, and I have 4 children and are expecting our 5th in January.  

What is the fondest memory from your playing career at DeSales?
My fondest memory was beating Watterson my senior year and going undefeated in the regular season.

What was your best game?
It was probably the regular season game against Watterson.  I had a couple sacks, our defense shut them out and the whole team played well.  It was a lot of fun. 

What made playing for DeSales special?
Without a doubt, the people.  It is a sense of community built around pride and tradition made possible by the great people that are a part of it.

Do you still follow DeSales, if yes, how closely?
Now that I moved back to Ohio, I speak regularly with a couple of friends who are on the coaching staff, so I definitely get my fill.
