I feel like I’m running for Congress with this fancy “About Me” page. I’ll assure you, I’m not (well not yet at least). Anyway, I guess you want to know who the guy behind the keyboard is, so I might as well tell you.
I was born in 1996 in Edison, New Jersey in (fun fact) the same hospital as Halsey, and grew up on Long Island, New York, hence my Twitter handle. I graduated Hofstra University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a minor in History. I am a practicing Roman Catholic and a Third Degree Knight in the Knights of Columbus.
After successfully escaping from the People’s Republic of New York, in a move that was disappointingly not at all like the 80’s Kurt Russell film, I now live in northeastern Florida. In my free time I enjoy watching sports (mainly the New York Yankees), going to the gym, going to the beach, trying different types of food (mainly really, really spicy stuff) and spending time with my dog, Henry.
