Interests

My passions outside of the office include spending time with my family - my wife Kara, and my two daughters, Mia, age 19, and Annabelle, age 16. The children keep us very busy with their activities, which among other things include one of my other passions, music. I have played guitar for 30 years, and it is my favorite way to unwind and relax. Mia plays piano and violin and hopes to one day form a band with me. Annabelle is very artistic, and enjoys any and all craft activities. I am especially proud of Kara, who has run several marathons and a tri-athlon. As a family, we enjoy spending our summers in Long Beach, Long Island.
