I was born in the Bronx, New York and moved to Ramsey, New Jersey with my parents and brothers in the 1970s.  I attended catholic elementary school and Don Bosco Prep for high school, where I played varsity baseball and ran track.  I graduated from Swarthmore College and then attended Pace University Law School as a night student while working for a mortgage company during the day.  After graduating from law school, I worked for a year as a law clerk for Judge Arthur Troast in the Bergen County Superior Court. I then went into private law practice, first in Hudson County and now in Rochelle Park, New Jersey.  I am also involved in real estate development and manage several mixed-use and commercial buildings in the area.

I am married with three beautiful children:  Natalie, age 17; Bryan, age 14; and Stephanie, age 9.   My wife Verna and I have lived in Wyckoff for 17 years.  Over the past 10 years I have served as a coach for several rec sports teams, including basketball, softball and soccer, and have also served as a swim official at the Wyckoff YMCA.  I am a former member of the Wyckoff Environmental Commission.  I have been active on the Wyckoff Planning Board for the past five years and have served as chairman for the past three years.  

Fun Fact:  I am a 60’s and 70’s music buff.  I am a lousy golfer.
