I was born and raised right here in Central New York and graduated from Ilion High School. In my free time I love to explore the Adirondacks while kayaking and camping every spring/summer. I also love sports including the Dallas Cowboys, the New York Yankees and the New York Knicks. Since Utica brought the Comets back in 2013 I've enjoyed getting more into hockey as well! Since 2012 I have not cut my hair so I will eventually be able to make a donation to an organization that makes wigs for children suffering from hair loss due to illness. I am also one of the biggest Simpsons and Back to the Future fans you will meet! Go Pioneers! Go Comets!
